I said before his injury (I don't remember his numbers maybe someone could help me out in that department). He played injured for a while and when he came back he never hit his stride as he was in and out on several occasions.

Now there may be other reasons out there that you could point to to support your "lack of patience" argument, but the JvR for Schenn trade is not one of them.
In general the flyers aren't patient. And yeah they addressed a need by getting Schenn and dealing from a point of strength but there were other options on d available. Schenn was acquired before we even knew definitively what was happening with Weber. I firmly believe that if JVR wasn't injured last yr and got to play a full season he would still be a flyer. That's partially why I consider them impatient.
