I understand all the arguments for having Trouba play in STJ this season, but what I see in his play gives me an inkling that we might be pleasantly surprised and he may kick the Jets' door down. It's a nice issue for the Jets to deal with.
Scheifele looks to me like he's ready to play. He gets knocked down a bit more than you might expect, but it doesn't really hamper his effectiveness. He seems quite good defensively, which tells me that he can probably play 2C on this team, and at worst 3C. I think he might already be good enough for the 2nd PP too. The biggest weakness that I've observed is in the face-off circle. I'm not sure how they'll deal with that, but it will be a liability in the near term.
