EDMONTON JOURNAL: Jim Matheson reports the Philadelphia Flyers are “vigorously shopping” defenseman Luke Schenn, who’s been a healthy scratch in three games. SPECTOR’S NOTE: If true, the Flyers should find more interest in him than in the oft-injured Andrej Meszaros, but they won’t get as much for him as the Leafs did when they shipped him to Philadelphia for James van Riemsdyk.
I don't want to trade him. At least not yet. His stock can't get much lower & if he turns it around they can get more back for him or keep him.
Another epic fail on Homer's part. He showed no patience with JVR whatsoever and shipped him out before he had a chance to blossom. I know we needed blueline help, but he sold JVR 50 cents on the dollar. While I was intrigued with L Schenn's potential, he's vastly underachieved. He's a slightly more skilled version of Hal Gill. Homer really needs to be shown the door.
I don't miss JVR at all. Luke Schenn is still developing & is only 24. Given that we aren't great this season I'd say wait until near the deadline to decide what we're going to do with him. If you hated the trade when JVR was shipped out then you'd really hate trading Schenn now. His value is too low now.
not upset to see JVR gone at all. in fact I don't think he wanted any part of staying here and don't think he develops here. both Schenn's have putback to back great games together.with Brayden it's hard for me to tell if he's developing into a solid player or if it's more of a product of being paired on a line with someone as talented as Vinny? either way I'm happy to see their play imorvoe. and yeah, as much as we rag on the play of Coburn at times he's been very steady of late and our D would be in a world of hurt without him on the team right now. 2 second round picks aren't enough.
