I've three and a halfish Flyers games so far this season.

Schenn looks decent. His game is what it should have been here in Toronto - less noisy, efficient, simple.

He plays simple passes. He chips pucks out. He is physical without trying to overplay by going for a big hit. He doesn't loose many puck battles.

They got a good player in the deal, and so did we.

One thing I will say - he looks much leaner now and that has helped with his foot speed. He looked heavy, and heavy-legged last season. He's not a lightning quick skater now, but it doesn't appear as though he needs the turning radius of a jumbo jet in order to change skating directions anymore.
