The schenn brothers are both very young, both very physical and could easily both become top line players. Yes we lost a bit of skill but we gain in grit, youth, and the potential for a better player. Maybe trading our first was excessive but I don't think philly would be willing to bite without it. Also, both were 5th overall picks, I highly doubt the flames draft better players.
Maybe exclude the first overall then, or if we acquire a first from someone else we could package it in. That way we keep our first which will probably be more valuable than a playoff teams first.
Just in terms of assets it doesn't make sense for us. Jbo,Gio,GlenX can all get 1st + prospect (level of prospects may be different) so we are giving up 4st + 3 prospects for Brayden Schenn + Luke Schenn + Braydon Coburn now whether or not they are worth it is another debate but with those 4 1sts + 3 prospects we could build an extremely deep prospect pool that could give us the base to build an elite team.
