After four years as a Maple Leaf Luke Schenn will finally get his wish and has been traded to play with his brother Brandon.
He was drafted fifth overall in 2008 but never really panned out in Toronto, and there was much frustra-schenn with his inconsistent play. After four years in the league one would hope his development would be further along but he never really turned into the hard-nosed gritty number one defenseman everyone hoped he would.
Now he gets to take his lukewarm play to Philadelphia where he can play on a line with his brother. Enjoy Philadelphia Luke, we’re sure it’ll treat you really well!
In return we welcome James Van Riemsdyk! JVR has been a force ever since entering the league and this young power forward has incredible upside! Some are projecting him to be a Cam Neely type for years to come. His gritty performance in last year’s playoffs will serve Toronto well in next year’s playoffs and we look forward to seeing him score many goals and pulverize many opponents over the next six years!
