The first pass thing isn't bollocks at all. For a stay-at-home defender his first passes haven't been terrible, but they also haven't been great. They're mediocre.

If we pinhole Schenn into a no-offense defenseman, then MAYBE his passing is OK, but I thought the whole point of this trade was that he allegedly had the potential to be more than just an all defense defenseman, no?

If not, then we basically traded for a stay-at-home defenseman who routinely gets caught out of position and doesn't have the speed to recover.

And compared to others on our team, his first passes are definitely poor. He's well behind Coburn, Timonen, Meszaros, etc.
