What might have been for NHL's Luke, Brayden SchennLoving it in Philadelphia but they came close to being Maple Leafs teammates

SAN FRANCISCO - They live just a couple of floors apart from each other in the same condo.
As teammates, they practice against each other, something they used to do for hours as kids on an outdoor rink in frosty Saskatoon.
Had things worked out, all these things would be taking place in Toronto for Luke and Brayden Schenn.
Instead, this sibling reunion fittingly is going on in the City of Brotherly Love.
Oh, what might have been.
On Sunday, Luke had his first official practice as a Philadelphia Flyer. In the process, during the line rush drills, one of the forwards who closed in on him was younger brother Brayden.
Had recently fired Brian Burke found a way to pull it off, the Schenns would both have been Leafs back in 2009. That’s what the bombastic Irishman wanted. Alas, like so many aspects of the recently terminated Burke era, things didn’t go as planned
