Schenn may be more effective on the LW, but he could also be less effective than he was on the right side. id rather just keep him at C, at least until he gets more comfortable at the NHL level and gets closer to his ceiling. then again, this all could change if lavi is replaced.
I have no problem with that. I would love to see the defensive abilities of a line with Laughton and Couts on it
