Another move that nobody could complain about. As much success JVR might be having in Toronto, the defense in Philadelphia would be in a whole lot of trouble without Schenn. He's been a rock back there.
Worst trade of the bunch. Instead of going after all the huge names, Homer could have signed a decent defenseman or two to fill the hole and not been forced to trade someone with the potential to be the next great American power forward ala LeClair.

This was a horrible, horrible trade stemming from Holmgren's inability to just make the basic smart signings instead of making a splash.
