Given that he had 4 years, multiple top 10 picks, tons of other draft picks and unlimited financial resources that top 6 is nowhere nearly good enough. You could have hired a blind goat like Edmonton did and ended up with a far better top 6. Or a defense that's not completely and utterly dysfunctional and needs a massive overhaul.
Better than JVR? Doubtful. JVR is young and was drafted higher than Schenn.

Ad Schenn actually did develop. People for get how good he was in 10-11'.
