Otherwise, I'm not as down on him as others are. Luke Schenn on the other hand is expendible. Sadly we gave up a 30 goal scorer for a guy that you could have gotten for a second rounder and that's probably what we'll get or at least the equivalent in player trade...
Not that I'm Luke's biggest fan or think he's an integral part of the team, but it's VERY rare for a defenseman to be a finished product at 24.

Defensemen continue developing for a while. Sometimes into their 30s. Honestly, I could see Luke as the type of guy who bounces around before putting it all together when he's like 27 or 28.
