I still don't think this team will make the playoffs, but adding Schneider will help there defense. The key to this team is Kovalchuk and Lethonen, if Lethonen is playing great, then this team can make the playoffs.
I'm surprised Klee was involved in this trade, he's getting up there in age and IMO with the new wave of Defensive talent that we've been hit by the last 2-3 years I'm surprised he's maintained a role. But then again (including him) the Average Age of the Ducks Defensive Corps is 32 :hah:. Tiger Balm or Bengay are gonna end up sponsoring 'em if they dont get some younger talent in there at D.
I'm gonna have to say this was a fairly even trade.... I'd like to keep an eye on that Painchaud kid, he's yet to play a game in the NHL so those mystery cases are always fun to keep track of.
