But anyway Schenn has been arguably our best defensemen this year. He's cut down his weight and improved on a lot of the things that plagued him in Toronto. He's been averaging over 20 minutes a night for us. Coaches don't award terrible players with that much ice time.
As for who won the trade personally I could care less. I'm happy with Schenn. You guys are happy with JVR. Both players were luxuries for each team and both needed a change of scenery. They are both playing well for their teams right now and to me that's all that really matters. And not that it really means anything but the 07 draft wasn't anything special when you compare it to recent drafts.
With that said good luck to you guys tomorrow and the rest of the season.
I don't evaluate Schenn based on 1 play or 1 game, but over his whole career. The fact is he made plays like that so many times as a Leaf I seriously was so glad to see him traded. I've seen him cough up the puck to Staal vs the Canes this year which lead to another goal, screen the Bryz on a few goals. He's making the same mistakes that made me dislike him as a Leaf. Wait until he does that for the 50th time, fans will turn on him like they did here.
