Just a simple question / poll. Leafs fans continue to try and push Schenn on us acting like we'd be lucky to get him straight up for JVR. I've said several times that I don't think our fans even want him.

Simple question: Would you want Luke Schenn if the deal is JVR for Schenn straight up?

LOL, the two people voting yes... from Toronto. If I were them I would love it too, since it is so uneven.

No

All of the Leaf Fans are saying "Schenn is going to be soooo good!"

I am not buying it.

JVR has shown that he can be one of our top forwards. If he gets traded it should be for more than just Schenn. It just sucks that he has been playing injured this season.

I sad yes but I think if push came to shove I would say no. The only reason I say yes is because the Flyers have a glut of young forwards and few defensemen. It isn't a knock on JVR, it's just what makes this team better. If you deal JVR for Schenn straight up, that also clears cap room to go after a forward to replace JVR in the short term. It would be a very interesting dilemma for me if I were GM and this trade was offered.

Also those acting like Schenn is not going to be very good are jumping the gun a bit. He played very well last year and although he is struggling this year he is only 22. He may never be a #1 but I'd be pretty surprised if he wasn't a #2-#3 defenseman for most of his career.

I would not trade JVR for Schenn because, no matter how much getting Schenn will help the team, I think the ceiling is higher on JVR because he is a forward who is still coming into his game and has been set back by injuries. I don't want to give him up for something that in a few years will be overpayment or a casualty of being deep upfront like Sharp or Williams. Now if it was OEL or someone like that it could be totally different.

If they traded JVR for Schenn straight up (which I doubt happens, I think it would be Schenn +) if my calculations are correct they could still go after a mid range forward like Tuomo Ruutu.

Hartnell-G-Jagr
Ruutu-Briere-Voracek
Simmonds-Schenn-Read
HarryZ-Couturier-Talbot

Timonen-Coburn
Carle-Schenn/Mez
Schenn/Mez-Gus/MAB

I honestly think that team is stronger with Ruutu (or similar player) and Schenn on D than with JVR and a different defender (unless the different defender is someone like Weber or Suter). Moving forward JVR would likely be better than Ruutu but Schenn will likely be better than our other defensive options. Since defense is a bigger need right now, I think it would really benefit this team. On paper JVR for Schenn is not a great deal for the Flyers, but because of the need of defensemen I think it makes sense.

I think its all BS though. JVR is not going anywhere unless we get Weber or Suter.

Nope. Rather keep JVR or use him for a trade for Suter/Weber if that presents itself

I voted no, but it's not THAT bad of a return because Schenn has a lesser cap hit going forward. But I still say no because JVR is still young, and I think he can still be a terrific goal scorer.

When has he shown it? People keep saying this yet he is mostly invisible and this has been going on since last year. Couturier, Brayden Schenn, Read all looked better in their first year than he has in his first, second and now third.

People here keep saying Leafs' fans are delusional but it's just as bad here.
