Playing him on the fourth line limits him to about 10 to 12 minutes a night and doesn't allow him to finish developing his offensive game.
I'm not sure they've decided. Laughton will get a couple more preseason games before decision time.
Schenn is going to be a LW for sure, otherwise why play him with Cousins vs. Toronto? Given how great he's looked, I think he could end up with G and JV, with Hartnell moving down with Vinnie and Simmonds (a line Lavy was raving about in one of the video clips).
Only Qs now are will Raffl stick, and is that the domino that pushes Talbot from 3rd to 4th line, and forces Laughton back to Jr.
