Does Anyone Remember Luke Schenn?
The same day as the Grant re-acquisition we also acquired Michael Del Zotto from the Vancouver Canucks for Luke Schenn and a 2020 7th round pick. Blink and you would’ve missed him. Del Zotto only played 12 games for Anaheim and got a lousy 3 assists. Luke Schenn only played in 8 games this season and he did not score any points.
Schenn was then dropped to the Gulls where he did something right and registered 10 points (2G, 8A) in 22 games. Schenn only saw 2 games with the Canucks before being sent down to the Utica Comets getting 5 points (1G, 4A) in 7 games. This trade was also even in the sense that we didn’t gain or lose anything except a 7th round pick in a draft that’s two years away.
This Trade Could be too Early to Call
Now, here’s the trade that broke hearts all throughout the fan base. Brandon Montour was traded to the Buffalo Sabres last week for Brendan Guhle and a 2019 1st round pick. I’m one of the people who didn’t like the trade because I felt we could’ve received more. However, everyone got that pick and the prospect they wanted.
The only difference here is that it was Montour who was traded instead of Jakob Silfverberg. He’s been on a noticeable decline, so it was easy for Bob to pick him out and trade him. Since heading to Buffalo he’s only played one game, no points yet.
The same can be said for Guhle as he’s only played two games with the Ducks. He could be sent down and help SD make a run for the Calder Cup. It’s also nice to have a secondary 1st round pick. The trade is a toss up so far. We’ll see a year from now.
