JVR at 21 did need more time, anyone who suggested otherwise would be equally wrong as those suggesting it's time to start worrying about Schenn. Some may have a double standard but many don't.
Another thing is that JVR had been with the team for several seasons whereas this is Schenn's first full one, so fans are generally willing to give him more time.

I thought everyone was too harsh on JVR, the same will happen to Schenn, but I wouldn't worry. He won't be around another 2 years once Holmgren, like Philly fans, gives up on him without giving him proper development time. It's the Philly way. As I pointed out elsewhere, there is only one regular player on this team that the Flyers developed and has been here for 3 consecutive years from the start of their career.
