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.
Like Bob before him, I think we end up regretting it big-time if we let Schenn go.
