The suddenly just like Friedman suggested Schenn was dealt at the draft for a player Burke could have had months earlier. Burke thought he was likely getting Justin Schultz and was creating a hole for him, then dealing Schenn for JVR and inserting free wallet Schultz into Schenn's former spot would have been a windfall move for the Leafs. That would explain the timing of the Schenn trade prior to UFA season as it was predicated on Schultz availability beforehand.
Yeah, because an injury wouldn't have anything to do with it, right?

Also, link about Schultz being behind the Schenn move?
