Murray is also not a fan of rookies. No way does Schenn replace Handzus with Murray. He's a little more comfortable with Lewis since he's shown that he can play defense. Schenn was not a popular player with Murray on the defensive side.
You guys really think you can take a player from Juniors right into the NHL playoffs? Schenn needs another training camp and a lot of regular season games to get prepared. Schenn isn't even a lock for the NHL next year. He may end up in Manchester with Loktionov in LA.
Harrold would have been claimed, absolutely. He has added value that he can play both D and F, adequately enough to eat up minutes.
As far as taking a player from juniors and jump right into the NHL playoffs, well, PK Subban says hello, and do we think Subban is better than Schenn? Subban also did it in a position that is much harder to learn....so yea, I think some players can do it.
