Don't get me wrong, I love Buff. He has an excellent x factor to him and can be extremely versatile, but Luke Schenn has a decent +/- of +5 on a team that has been struggling with an average of 20 min of ice time. He's known as a fairly reliable defencemen that has a decent shot (no Buff rocket but a decent shot) And getting Brayden would help our offense quite a bit IMO. Unfortunately our center position is a bit clogged but Brayden is a great young player that can definitely be a core player for our team.

Now.....the likeliness of this trade is slim to nil, because I believe Holmgrem, while an excentric GM to say the least, is a fairly smart one, and will see this is an overpayment. But if offered, I would take the Schenns for Buff in the end.
I am a Winnipeg fan but no way Hommer makes a deal like that for two valuable young pieces of the Flyer puzzle. sounds like Luke is finding his game in Philly and Brayden is a very solid young piece. Big time overpayment for Buff IMHO.
