Considering everything, very deserving.
Schaefer and Bolduc will work well together. Although Bolduc is the one who will be taking the draws, the real "center" of the line will be Schaefer.
Schaefer is really smart on the ice* from what I've seen and just knows how to adjust to his teammates and the on-ice situation - he's not a "must do this" player. And of course, he's an excellent puck-handler.
Bolduc is more the Hansen of the line, the guy who skates miles, forechecks and generally harasses the other team. Not great at handling the puck.
* Bolduc and Schaefer were on the PK last Friday night and had a 2 on 2 opportunity. As soon as Schaef saw that Bolduc was taking the shot (puck had not left Bolduc's stick yet), without hesitation Schaef turned and peeled off for the bench, rather than wait for a rebound and possibly get caught deep and tired - most pkers don't do that - they stay for a possible rebound. That's a smart hockey player.
