FWIW, van riemsdyk has just 1 goal, 3 points over his last 10 games. even after his hot start, he has just 22 points in 34 games. and while that's an improvement over what he did here, it's not really any more valuable than what the flyers are getting from luke schenn.
in fact, for this team, i'd take schenn without a second thought. and that's without accounting for the whispers that he milked his injury last season so that the flyers couldn't trade him at the deadline.
People ask me, "Why here? Why Kentucky?", I said "Why not"? It can be done here. It will be done here. Lay the foundation. Recruit and develop. Prepare to win. Day by day. Play by play. A new era of high performance. Why Kentucky? Why not? -Mark Stoops
What a pass from grab, also love that you can see Jagr's lack of speed this whole play and what an awful turnover.
I think Schenn made major strides this year (thank God) as did JVR, so in my opinion, this was one of those rare trades that truly benefited both squads.

Come on guys... They just want some recognition for finally making the playoffs. Don't rain on thier parade. Maybe in another 12 years they will make it out of the first round.
