Seriously though...quoted for emphasis...

I still believe that that specific trade was not as bad considering our needs and our depth at forward (*cough*Laughton*cough), however...you never go into a trade without caring that you're not getting the better value.

LSchenn will right his ship. He won't ever be a stud, but we knew that. Neither will JVR. We got hosed, but we won a dozen other trades. Sigh and move on.

Those saying that JVR > LSchenn were right though, myself included. I think it's pretty obvious why now though.

Would've preferred shipping out Hartnell for defensive help at that point. Hartnell for LSchenn and our lineup looks like this...

vanRiemsdyk - Giroux - Voracek
Simmonds - Lecavalier - Schenn
Downie - Couturier - Read
Rinaldo - Hall - Raffl

Timonen - Coburn
Streit - Grossmann
Gustafsson - Schenn

Mason
Emery

One change is significantly better.
