He needs to produce offensively! More minutes, better linemates, not a rookie and a semi washed up-injury prone winger. This guy was projected to go #1 overall before mono, and yes, a big part was his hockey IQ and amazing defensive instics, but the other big part was the 90+ pointss he put up in Drummondville.
This is why I'm saying that it's time to move Schenn to wing and let Laughton play the 3rd pairing.

Schenn can be that Shane Doan kind of guy given the chance. Settle him next to Giroux and Voracek. I promise we won't regret it.

Schenn - Giroux - Voracek
Hartnell - Couturier - Simmonds
Raffl - Laughton - Clarkson/Gagne/Read/Stalberg/Horton/Cleary/Bickell
Rinaldo - Hall - Talbot
