The Jets didn't give him much of a chance in terms of line mates and ice time. Maybe they wanted him to center a checking line and weren't impressed with his shutdown ability? He didn't have much success in the face-off circle either. But compare Scheifele's situation to RNH centering between Hall and Eberle and seeing lots of PP time...I don't doubt Scheifele would be getting a point per game with big minutes and talented wingers.
