When you think of Luke Schenn, what uniform do you picture him in?

For some, it’s the Flyers, but often many think of him as the steal trade of the decade that brought Toronto James van Riemsdyk.

Few think of him as an LA King, but it’s his most recent team he played for. For you, the answer may be different. Maybe you remember him as a World Junior player? A Kelowna Rocket? But for next season, will he be in Canucks uniform? Maybe. Does it make sense? Uhh...

After filling in last week for JD, I've officially taken over the roundtable. Frankly, I've always wanted a table and for it to be round is just a bonus. Let's move on.

Darren Dreger of TSN caused quite a stir over the past 24 hours with this remarks that the Canucks could potentially move the 5th overall pick.

David Perron

David Perron is a goal scoring winger in decline and may be open to a cheap deal to prove that he can still be effective in the middle six, or maybe even the top six. Given his numbers and the players he's been sharing the ice with however, it's more likely that he's headed towards the bottom six than the top.
