The Man with a Plan

As per TSN and DD

I don't know how I feel about this but we had to do something with all the depth we have on the back end. Guess everyone wants to play with their brother now ;)

Boyd Devereaux tried to lose. He was just so horrible when he tried to shoot wide he accidentally score 3 times.

Let's hope he can parlay this into getting a centre man.

Peter D.

It was a matter of time before a D was dealt.

Really like this trade.

Kudos to Erndog!!!... (some folks will know what I'm talking about.)

Could this also mean we are making room for Schultz later this week? He and his agent said they are going to decide on wed where they end up and they are meeting in Toronto to do so.

But anyways we def got a quality young player back who has a long career ahead of him...
Be interesting to hear BB's presser on this trade.

On a comical note... i guess we now know that JVR is worth 10 first round picks, didn't BB say that's what it would take to get Luke away from TO at one point in time? ;)

Good trade? I geuss but I still think you guys will regret letting Schenn go. Good deal for Philly - more brothers united.

Agreed. I guess you gotta give up something to get something.

Can he play center or is a left winger on the way out?

I like the trade. JVR played really well two seasons ago becoming a fan favorite and an emerging force. Lets all hope he's healthy. In my opinion Philly paid a premium to unite the brothers.

JVR: http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/bio/?id=6041

POB: Middletown, NJ
Height: 6-3 Weight: 200lbs
Shoots: L

Drafted by Philadelphia in 2007 (1/2).

his best year was

2010-11   Philadelphia   NHL   75   21   19   40

really came on in the second half of the season, and put up 7 goals in 11 playoff games that year. Prototypical Power forward.

Leafs win this deal.

I hate to lose Schenn, but I've been a fan of JVR for quite a while. It's kind of shocking that he's ours now.
Best of luck to Luke Schenn, I think he fits right in with Philly.

Not a natural centre but he can play all forward positions. But his health is what scares me to be honest.
