My friend is close buddies with a former coach of the Toronto organization, who broke the Schenn/JVR swap to me back around the deadline. He stated that due to JVR's concussion, the deal was put aside at the time. Interestingly enough, he also stated the Flyers organization is going to pissed off to find out that Schenn is blind in his left eye.
Bringing this over from the second Weber thread, where someone posted this and caused a tizzy.

I found this article from 2010 that mentions Schenn indeed does have a vision problem in one eye and the Leafs staff even made him wear a contact lens in that eye during games:

Not sure what it means, but it says he refuses to discuss the vision issue, which is a bit disconcerting.
