I'm more than content with Luke Schenn. Power skating lessons are probably a must this off season as well as shedding a few pounds (it's not like he's fat, but he's too heavy to be playing at 230 when he's only 6'2) to be better on his feet.

He played very well last season, so I'm not sure why there's hesitation with using him this season. I will say that I'm quite comfortable with John Paddock working with Luke because Paddock has a history of working well with defensemen.

As for JVR, never was and never will be a fan. He's already started to cool off after his hot start and the inconsistencies that plague him are starting to come back.
Yandle was just an example and I actually didn't want to give up the assets to get him then and still don't now. My point was the talent JVR had should have gotten a better return than LSchenn who is not as talented and also inconsistent. We traded one inconsistent player for another inconsistent one.
