I still believe this organization thinks it can win this year or even make a deep playoff run. Schenn at the 2nd line center seems like a thing an up-and- coming team would do, not a contending team
I think that 50 games is a long time for Schenn to grow into the 2nd line center role. We'd need him to be up to it by the playoffs. And IMO, he would be. I watched him very closely during his time up here and he did everything we need a #2C to do. He won draws, he was defensively responsible, and he set up some great chances and had some great chances himself, unfortunately none of them went in so he is still point-less.
EDIT: And should it become obvious that Schenn can't handle the 2nd line center role, we could easily make a trade @ the deadline. Olli Jokinen from Calgary would be perfect and should be available. And at only a $3M cap hit, we could easily make it work.
