Just think it's likely a pipedream, especailly for a team thats historically been pretty top heavy in its top six offense (at least recently)
Schenn really struggled in his 2nd year with the flyers statistically. After a slow Jan (2 assists in 6 gms), he was vgood in Feb (16 pts in 15 gms). Very solid #2 center.
Then, March came along, and he struggled. Was a -12 in 13 gms, with only 3 assists. April was a bit better 5 pts in 13 gms. Flyers could have used a more productive 2nd line C, much like the Jets.
So, are the Flyers wondering about Schenn? Maybe. Though with that inconsistent production, he might not be what the Jets need, either.
Live and die with inconsistent young players. Until they mature. Hopefully they grow out of it.
