I've been super impressed with Grossman. He's been solid defensively, which most of us know. He also makes some good keeps in the offensive zone to help preserve offensive posession...but I think the most underrated part of his game is his puck moving ability, especially from the defensive zone and off of faceoffs...he consistently makes swift, decisive skating and passing plays to get to loose pucks and move them up the ice. I would go so far as to say that I would give him the edge to say, a Matt Carle in this regard. Love me some Grossman!

Schenn has been strong to quite strong. He hits everything, without getting too far out of position, makes solid puck moving plays and can shoot. He's coming along very nicely and, in time, could emerge as a borderline dominant force along the blueline for the Flyers. Right now he's a solid #2/3 type imo.
