At the age of 23 he's still developing and I'm looking forward for the future with him on our blue-line.

People really should stop talking about who lost this trade because there is no losing team at this point.
I'm hoping that forcing him to take these huge minutes and increased responsibilities while simultaneously having little to no expectations will do wonders for his development. Hopefully Schenn carries this experience forward when we actually have other NHL d-men, although at this point I think he's solidified himself as a top pairing option even if he's not a legit #1 or #2.
