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
He is pegged as a second line center, but if we got rid of Stoll it would be between him and Handzus for the job and Schenn has the type of game that could be used in a third line role and might be a good start for him to work his way up from. Given Murray, I could easily see that happening.
