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.


Agreed.

There's still alot of time for Schenn to develope into the top pairing Dman he was projected to become (gotta remember that Toronto, and the media there has a history of running their Dman thru the ringer).

A solid move for both teams; it was apparently gonna happen by the trade deadline, but JVR's health at the time was suspect - hence no deal then.

Supposedly Toronto isn't done making moves. It'll be interesting to see what they do in free agency. They desperately need a goaltender, as well, hence the Luongo trade rumors.

Me thinks Burke isn't liking what Gillis is requesting for Luongo at this point in time.

I'm guessing Luongo will be a Maple Leaf within a few weeks; probably for a 2nd round pick, and some mid level prospect...Gillis has little to no leverage here...I'm thinking Luongo could be another "Eddie Belfour" in finding a new life in T.O.

Cherry with another shot at Burke:

Schenn and VanRiemsdyk didn't live up to their billing. Luke is a prime example of an 18 year old. He lost confidence 2 much pressure 2 soon

Luke is a good kid. Wish him luck in Philly. JVR shows flashes of talent, seems to play when he wants, could be good but he's not a... (continued in next tweet)

hitter or a blocker. He's American though so he'll fit right in, in Toronto


Gotta love Grapes, love him or hate him, you have to respect the man for speaking his mind.

You may not like tough hockey, but it's winning hockey.
