I just think B Schenn is easily replaceable
He may be easily replaceable in the sense that his production from last year can be replaced, but I think his future potential cannot easily be replaced. I wouldn't have a problem dealing Schenn (or Couturier or Laughton) because of the logjam at center, but I wouldn't say that Schenn is easily replaced. I think improving the defense while taking a hit on offense is a better way to look at it. Obviously his potential, like many others, may never be reached, but a 22 year old kid with potential like Schenn's is not easily replaced. He was looking at roughly a 50 point season at 22 years old (if this season was a full one). Those aren't numbers to scoff at.
