Schaefer outscored both of them combined last season, because both of them missed significant time due to injuries... again.
Meanwhile, Schaefer just played his 3rd 80+ game season in 5 full seasons (the other 2 season were above 70 GP). He put up 50 points last season and he's expected to fulfill a bigger offensive role this season, in addition to his penalty-killing role.
We don't need Matt Cooke. Volchenkov significantly reduces the Cream-puffy-ness of our post-Chara defense-corps.
The idea (dreamed up by a bored reporter) of acquiring PJ Axelsson probably had as much thought behind it as acquiring the siblings of all of our players (Garrioch probably still thinks we missed the boat on Marcel Hossa and is eagerly awaiting the Nolan Schaefer trade).
