Was he not trying to drag Briere along much of last year? That guy was a massive anchor on every line he touched. Schenn doesn't have it in him yet (who knows, maybe at all) to carry a line himself, much less one that has a husk on it. Giroux, while clearly a special player, didn't have to deal with a guy who was no longer good at much of anything at the equivalent point in his career.
