Have to wonder if this is clearing the way for Bobby Ryan to Philly & Justin Schultz to Toronto.

Yeah a straight swap doesn't seem very equal... JVR's stock is worth more then Schenn's. Hmm.

GIllis will be caught at the end of the night without a dancing partner. Word was he rejected Schenn for Lui straight up. Imagine if he had the foresight and took Schenn for Luongo, then flipped Schenn for JVR ... people here in Vancouver would be all over themselves.

JVR has had a seemingly rough time in Philadelphia, no? I mean, obviously, the kid is talented - but for him to come out and say he'd embrace a trade to CBJ.. That says a lot about the situation.

I think it'll work out well for both teams. The Leafs put Schenn in the NHL too early and while he had a great rookie season he's been below average since but he still has the potential to be a solid stay at home #3 or #2 perhaps. JVR certainly has a higher ceiling but it's obvious his stock has fallen due to his injuries this year since it was only straight up. Lupul, Kessel, JVR, Mac/Kulemin, decent set of top 6 wingers now. If they get Luongo (just a matter of time IMO) they'll be in the playoffs.

JVR just signed a 6 year contract extension at the start of last season. What the hell is Philly doing? Getting re-signed for a long term is starting to look like the kiss of death if you're a Flyer.

Carter and Richards both booted within a year of signing long term deals. JVR today. Bryz next?

I think this is a win win deal for both sides. They are dealing from a position of strengh to fix a position of weakness, liking this trade for both sides.

cap friendly re-signing in Philly = kod *rofl* 3 player in only 3 years

Team USA-North will see a lot more of their players on the Marlies; they could sign Bobby Orr and they would get more games than they will out of JvR.

JVR had an excellent playoffs a year ago. Schenn has not really shown much and Wilson had him on the bench quite a bit. The Leafs win this trade big time. JVR has to prove he can stay healthy though. I don't know why Holmgren would make this trade really. I know Philly needs defense but he could have upgraded his blueline much better in giving up JVR, IMO.
