Luke is what he is. And honestly, unless you're Zdeno Chara or Chris Pronger etc, your partner is going to effect your play. Luke is no different.
The only reason it matters at all is if you have an inflated value for Schenn.
Schenn to me is an okay defender, but nothing special at his cap cost.
The Flyers need to upgrade their defensive team speed.
Schenn's skating ability is poor in comparison to MacDonald.
I would rather have MacDonald than Schenn at a 4M cap cost.

Both Schenn and Grossman are slower skaters making them expendable if a better option is available.
