Depth on the big club, plus before this year he wasn't ready. He'll be 24 in February so at some point you have to see what you have in a guy. He is what he is and to me he's as good as Schenn. I've been knocked for making that comment but I truly believe that and I won't back down from it. Schenn gets a lot of attention and love because of the huge hits he lays on guys, but when he does make a hit like that most of the time he takes himself totally out of the play. I remember Schenn added 20 pounds or something a summer ago or two summers ago and I really believe that has affected him. He looks slow and out of position a lot this year.
