Yup. Theres some people who would prefer to wait till a player fully develops to cast judgement on whether or not it was a good move. Schenn looks good now and did in the NHL. Will he have a better career than a talented Russian? A solid Canadian prospect in Cody Hodgson? A talented American forward in Colin Wilson who was a Hobey Baker finalist?
At this point, it isn't clear Schenn will have the best career. Solid start, but there's still alot to debate on how good he can be. Same with the others. He's proven more as an NHLer than the others, but time will tell if he's the best pick. There's plenty to consider in the move, especially now that it looks like we may be in a position to draft another highly regarded D-man with our 7th overall pick this year.
Players like Kane get shutdown by players like Schenn.
How many stanley cups did Gretzky win after he was dealt from that dynasty ? Yeah... if a team wants to win, especially in the playoffs, they need a guy like Schenn on the back end, no doubt. If Schenn keeps progressing the way he is, there's no doubt in my mind, if proposed with either having the ability to start a team with Schenn, or Kane, I'd take Schenn 10 out of 10 times. The kid has great potential and he's reaching it so far.
I called Toronto dumb for not taking Filatov, but now I am proved wrong. As much as I dislike Toronto, I like to see all Canadian teams doing well.
No offense but this is a major homer comment and so is most of this post
oh sorry but my point was i dont care how much u value dman(and i value keith and sebs as high as kane and toews), but almost everyone would take kane over schenn unless schenn becomes stevens which is very unlikely
