The forwards I could potentially take with this pick are:
As you can see below, I need help at wing and it looks as if Schenn will be playing LW when hockey resumes.
Should I take this trade?
I'd pass, Couture's upside is far superior to Schenn's.
I just see him as the better player going forward. I always say to people when they're debating a trade offer they received "there's a reason you're being offered this trade." If there wasn't a reason, he wouldn't be offering it to you.
