I agree, Marc Staal has just been getting better and better every year since his rookie season. Schenn isn't on his level yet.

Schenn matches up against 2nd/3rd liners while leading the league in giveaways and not generating enough offense to warrant his protection in the lineup. Phaneuf constantly matches up against other top lines in a shutdown role, if there is a comparable to Staal, Phaneuf would be closer. Marc Staal was the go to guy on a top 5 defensive team, Schenn was the #2 guy at best on a poor defensive club.

All I can say is if Schenn gets anything over 4 mil, Marc Staal is underpaid and on a steal contract.
