Firstly, I love your Avatar man, Awesome,

Secondly, this trade makes sense in a number of ways, Ryans a stud PF, couple that with a sniper in Kessel and youve got a dangerous first line, my only concern with that is your giving away Schenn, now mind you Ryans a big return, but winning will always start from the blueline out, and 2 top4 d who are both already under 26 is a good place to start IMO, it might be more prudent to trade kabarle to a team willing to give up some assests then maybe make a run at ryan otherwise id say let him go

He's not getting traded. Burke wouldn't trade this kid for Hedman, why would he trade him for Ryan?

Anze Kopitar is going to become a top 10 forward in the league and trust me I'm a leafs and kings fan so I've seen my share of games.
Kopitar has talent, but the guy's a floater - not really the type of guy you want on a contending team... I think he bombs in the playoffs.

He would have traded him for the 2nd pick to draft tavares, if Hedman was available lightning weren't trading it

No way. Burke was never going to put Schenn in a deal.

Trading a bulb before it blossoms is exactly what has killed the culture of this team in season's past (because you never know how brightly it will bloom). Its a desperate move that will only come back to haunt you in a few years.

Dude theres a video of him and Nonis at the draft last summer on tape with him saying, " the lightning said we could trade with them but I would look like a fool trading Schenn and not getting tavares"

Just saying

According to you if I make enough 'Schenn sucks' posts he'll get super sensitive about it and want to leave, or did you already forget the nonsense you were spewing a few pages ago?

I didn't say that Schenn will want to leave. Maybe you need to work on that reading comprehension a little? I guess ignorance really is bliss.

Next you're going to be telling me that Schenn reads youtube comments and gets upset about them.
Lets look at the flipside of your argument here. What exactly are you gaining by setting up Schenn proposals? Are Burke and the Ducks brass scanning the Internet for trade scenarios? Do you think the constant selling of Schenn does anything other than give the fanbase a reason to dislike the player?

Kopitar is not a floater. He's actually turned into a good two way player that can be counted on playing in basically any situation. Maybe it appears this way because he's very smooth on the ice but he certainly isnt someone that is dogging it defensively or cherry picking for offence.
