What the fuck is it with the centre on the universe and handicapped parking?
Jason "I've always wanted to fight cancer" Blake is gone so they get
Phil "Busting his nut" Kessel
Johan "The heartless Monster" Gustavson
Let them keep their cripples.

He is sticking to his guns that the off season is the time for big deals and he has already made his "big" deal this season.

Schenn is 21 and like all young defenseman he`s had his up`s and downs.
Kid has a ton of raw ability though.
Development rarely happens in a straight ine and I would be shocked if Schenn doesn't return to form in the very near future.
I had the pleasure of watching Luke Schenn during his Rockets junior career.
When the leafs drafted him everyone in Kelowna assumed that he would be back with the Rockets, after all how many 18 year old defencmen make the NHL? The fact that he made it with the Leafs that year (top 4 D) was more a reflection on the shitty team the leafs were and still are.
No the Leafs had to keep him even though they were going nowhere. They should have sent him back for one more year of juniors. They instead kept him and have beaten his confidence into the ground. He has tons of talent and is still only 21. Given the right kind of coaching he can again develop into a top 4 d man on pretty much any team in the NHL IMO.
