#20 in blocked shots
Only Flyers D-man that has a positive +/- at +1

This is why they Flyers got him. I would say it this way...what more could Philly realistically ask from Schenn that he has not done? This trade will always look bad on paper...but Schenn has improved as much as JVR. It just doesn't show it on the sexy stats.
I'm not so sure this is accurate.

When Luke Schenn is playing with confidence, he's not seen as a guy without "sexy stats".. He's seen as a guy who will shut down top lines and hustle/make hits that can drop your jaw.

JVR is our 4th best forward right now. If Luke Schenn is your 2nd/3rd best D like some say.. What's wrong with that?
