What is Schenn supposed to turn into, a 2nd line C, or a 3rd line grinder? Just asking because depending on what he is pegged as etc, really determines how and where he should be used.

If the organization's goal is for him to be a long term 2nd pivot, you do not want him playing 6-8 min a game on the 4th line, you want him playing 20-25 min in juniors, or 16-20 min a game in the AHL.

If they peg him as a 3rd line talent, then possibly you can get away with pegging him at 6-8 min a game, but that is one helluva cap hit for a 4th line player
