I would love to have Schenn.. he could learn so much from guys like Greene, Scuds and Willie.. but like most Kings fans have said.. the team really doesn't need anymore dman.. at least not right now. But, I wouldn't be the least surprised if Dean got one.. he loves them.

Schenn is a good young player, D men take longer to develop.
This too. They can take awhile. They just need to get someone he can learn from, imo.
The leafs have only two peices that interest me as a kings ( well 3 but no way ur giving up ur 5th overall) Kadri and Nikolai Kulemin (mostly him ) and 2nd in 13 for bernier and ur choice of Brad richardson or Jordan Nolan or Andrei Loktionov only thing i don't want to do the deal till after july 1 and parise has decided where he wants to play. Also this will give the kings time to figure out quicks demands to see if there reasonable
Bernier is listed on Hockey's Future as an 8.0B prospect.
Reimer is listed as an 8.0C prospect, and has more games logged than Bernier. Why would the Leafs trade for Bernier when they have Reimer already?
Reimer suffered a major injury for a goalie (neck/concussion) and struggled to come back to play full strength. The Leafs needed him back badly and rushed his recovery.
The Leafs are looking for a guy to cover a 1-year period, play 30-40 games and give Reimer the time to reinstate himself as the No.1 goalie.
Bernier would represent a complete abandonment of Reimer and there is no reason to justify that decision. It's just awful.
Simple ask urself why hes had so many thread asking his worth and theres been none to my knowledge about his. Gm and others judge a goalie by watching him play. Yes he didnt play alot because Quicks amazing play and the king needed every point they could to get in the playoffs. He has a good starting record against nashville i think he only lost once but played them 4 times. . I think u also answered ur own question by stateing he was injuryed /concusion I know i would have concerns about his health till he can prove he can play. I do however think hes not the answer you need to swallow loungos contract and deal for him . toronto is not the right spot to break in as a goalie to much media bs to deal with on top of everything else
