Brayden will most likely be on the Kings next year anyway unless Lokti earns a spot. A stretch drive and possible playoffs will acclimate Schenn to the NHL as good as anything. Not saying put him in Kopitar's spot but play him behind Stoll and Handzus and let him be creative on the PP. If he proves himself than maybe you can bump him to 2cd line center. With JWilly and Kopi out the team is sorely lacking in creativity, the kind that Schenn can bring as a playmaker. Schenn has nothing more to prove at the Junior level.

No question about it. NHL playoffs are way more valuable than the Memorial Cup.

THANK YOU.

I don't get some of the reasons for him not to come up honestly. NO ONE can replace Kopitar, he'll know that and the coaching staff will know that but what he would gain from playing in the playoffs would be gold compared to winning some hardware in Juniors. It would help him also come to camp next season more pumped and mentally ready to be a pro. The experience would be invaluable.

Would that burn up a year on his contract? How would that work?

Can the Kings bring him in like they did last year for a one game Amateur Tryout? If they can, then I could see them bring him in on Tuesday in Edmonton. The Blades/Raiders series has a day off that day and Edmonton is a 4 hour drive or less than an hour flight from Saskatoon.

I could see them doing that for one game to give them an idea of whether he has improved since the beginning of the year.

If the Kings are bringing up Juniors, I wonder if they would consider WHL scoring champ Linden Vey? It is quite likely that the Medicine Hat Tigers season could be over as soon as Saturday. He's a centre, didn't put up Schenn like numbers, but was still WHL scoring champ.

"In exchange for Schenn, Brandon receives the Blades' first-round bantam picks in both 2011 and 2012. As well, the Wheat Kings get Saskatoon's second-round pick this year and the Blades' first-round selection in the 2012 CHL Import Draft.* In addition to the four draft picks, the Wheat Kings receive the Blades' top two 15-year old prospects: centre Tim McGauley and defenceman Ayrton Nikkel. McGauley and Nikkel were the Blades' first two picks in last year's WHL Bantam Draft, going 20th and 42nd overall respectively."

It's not going to happen.

Having moderate success at the beginning of the year is one thing. Having success when games are tighter, faster, and more physical is completely another.

Schenn played well for us when he was up, let him build on that next year. Inserting him in the lineup and expecting him to produce at a time when games are at peak intensity is unfair to him, and the odds of him having any type of impact is minimal at best.

Doughty spoiled us with his success at such a young age, lets not lose sight of the fact that such success is rare. It's so hard to be patient because we sucked for so long and with the painful memories of the LAPD line, but a panic move like this isn't the answer. The hardest thing to do is to be patient, unfortunately it's the right thing to do here.

This is part of my position as well. The CBA is structured to prevent exactly what is being proposed. My thought is that they will clean up the language even more this time around cutting the return loophole entirely making it only possible for a player to be called up to his NHL team once his jr team is out of the playoffs. Save that they stay put and to me it is fair. Look at what it cost to obtain BS, while you could argue caveat emptor it would destroy relations between the two league's (or the multiple facets of the two league's).

After the playoffs its anyones game but until then it would simply cause too many problems in my opinion.

Blades fan here... I don't think you guys can call Schenn up for anything more than a game as an emergency call-up, anyways.

On a side note, Schenn has 3 goals so far, and the Blades are up on the Raiders 2-0. Unreal talent, and you guys are lucky to have him... just not until next year!

No reason to burn a year from his ELC. Kings with Schenn isn't exactly a cup contender without Kopitar and Williams.

His season will end when his junior season is over.

Saskatoon is now down 2-0 vs. Kootenay - it's unlikely but Schenn's WHL season could be over by Wednesday night.

It's hard to say if the Kings would care all that much about burning a year of his ELC - he can burn a year of his ELC but not have it count as one of his 7 years towards UFA status. They may even want to burn that year, if possible, to get rid of his bonuses a year earlier if they project him to re-sign for less than his current cap hit after this contract.
