I think if Schenn can work on his skating he will be a top defenceman.
His physical play is fantastic, he'll hit and hit all day.

His shot was just awful when he first came into the league, hes worked on that lots in the last couple of years and now and then he'll suprise with a nice slapper but dont exect goals.

Where he lacks is in his skating. All too often he would jump into the play to make a hit leaving odd man breaks in behind him. Now and then he'll try to make a hit and forget about the play all together.

As time goes on I would definitely expect his hockey IQ to improve and he'll stop making silly mistakes, if he can get his skating up to scratch he'll be a great player.

Last year he looked quite sluggish at times, as if he couldnt recover when out of position. From watching your game on Saturday he looks like he may have lost a little weight? which would be a good thing. Drop a few lbs and work on that skating and you've got a beast of a defenceman there !

Got lots of time for him and wish him all the best, though Im not looking forward to him running kessel through the boards !
