Yes, I agree that the Gagne comparison holds as far as the smoothness goes. Schenn is stronger and hits a lot more, and Gagne had more speed, but there is a resemblance to the way they play.
Let's say Schenn is a nice combination of Richards' grit and two way play, and Gagne's smoothness?
Someone said Read was Gagne, but a few times lately, I've mistaken Read for Giroux on the ice, just by the moves he's making.
