That is another reason I would have preferred him up here this season as opposed to putting up video game stats against 17 year olds.
I think with someone like Williams on his line and decent PP time he will be a 50+ point player next season, which already is an improvement over what we got there now.
Can't wait to see him back next season.
While we could probably count on Schenn to outproduce Handzus, the veteran acumen and hockey sense will be lacking, not to mention moving from a rugged 6'5" veteran in a largely shutdown role to a smaller (though oozing with potential) rookie will likely be anything but a seamless transition.
