Brian Burke's recent acquisition of James Van Riemsdyk for Luke Schenn has to be seen as a positive step for the future of the franchise. JVR showed in his rookie season that he possesses both the speed and the skill set to be a first-line winger in the NHL. And, at only 23 years of age, there remains untapped potential. Riemsdyk's offensive creativity will undoubtedly create scoring opportunities and bolster the Leafs' power-play unit. Losing Schenn before he really had a chance to mature is a blow, but with the addition of two talented defensemen (Morgan Rielly and Matt Finn) at the draft, he had become expendable. While I'm really sorry to see Luke go and wish him all the best in the future, I'm actually more surprised that Brian Burke managed to get a player of JVR's stature for him straight up. Now, the Leafs face an enviable problem. What to do with so many talented wingers? With Kessel, Lupul, MacArthur, Armstrong, Kulemin, Crabb, Brown and now Riemsdyk, Brian Burke still has some work to do to straighten out the roster. Hopefully he steers clear of Roberto Luongo and the Canucks ludicrous asking price. Fingers crossed.
