You say he may be an elite power forward so his potential is higher than that of L Schenn who you pretty much say is just at best a top 4 D man..maybe so. But my belief is that JVR will probably be a serviceable player..50pt type guy and not some elite player like you think.
You apparently are misinterpreting my post. I wasn't knocking Brayden Schenn, I was simply saying that all he's shown he can consistently do @ the NHL level is bang bodies (since everyone knocked JVR for consistency). I was simply saying that if our organization considered (and eventually did) trade JVR, we should consider trading Schenn in the price is right. That doesn't mean I think he's a 3rd line grinder, or that I don't think he has talent / promise, it just means he's unproven just like JVR. Hence, if possible, I would look to trade him (trading from a position of strength) for a franchise defenseman (a position of immense weakness).
Jeez man, you're really reaching trying to make me out to be a Schenn hater / critic. I like him a lot, actually wore his jersey to the home opener, I'm just willing to explore all avenues to improve this team
