Keeping pucks out of your own net is pretty important to winning games, too; putting up points isn't the only way to judge a forward. Schenn hasn't shown any defensive acumen that leads me to believe he could play Couturier's role.

If there's any role in the top 9 we should want Schenn to take over, it's Lecavalier's #2 centre spot. Vinny doesn't appear to be in any hurry to give that up, though.
