He's alternated good and bad years since being drafted.

That's not entirely unexpected from a defenseman honestly. I'm sure he'll become more consistent (just as JVR will) as he ages a bit more. Let's hope we end up with an Adam Foote type player here.

Not a fan of the trade at all, but that's not because I don't think Schenn can help us. We traded struggling guy for struggling guy, but the maximal potential of the guy we got is lower than the maximal potential of the guy we gave. Whether either guy reaches his maximal value is in question and both reaching it is probably unlikely. Let's just hope this isn't the one we regret for a decade (like the Phillies and Ryne Sandberg).
