Probably no 1st line centers. I'm gonna guess the best player offered was pavelski maybe. Good on burke on keeping schenn, he is our future 1B/#2 defenseman(if he wasn't already) and homegrown. Future captain too imo. You can't trade away a guy like that.
I would keep Luke Schenn over Alex Ovechkin or the long-term concussed Sidney Crosby. There's nothing that could've been offered that would be enough for an ever-developing player whose ceiling is being the best defensive dman in the league for several seasons.
The public image of Schenn being untouchable is great as far as PR with the fans go, but no single player is untouchable.
There was nothing convincing enough for Burke to consider it, because the it would have to be a massive overpayment to acquire him.
I don't think it would have to be "massive overpayment", if the player in return was of similar age and equal or better than Schenn, Burke may pull the trigger, especially if it suits a need that Burke feels is more important on the team in his vision
Pretty sure I'd be insulted too.. good thing we don't have idiotic GM's that would trade Schenn cause he had a sophomore slump for a god damn low draft pick.. Gillis thought he was smart on that one...
