I had that impression as soon as we acquired him. People here ignored that this is exactly how LA felt about him despite having less NHL experience there.

JVR is probably a bit better because even though he will always be an underachiever at the NHL level at least he did produce some quality secondary scoring and had some good all around assets such as skating ability, size, and shot strength. Schenn seems similar, he just doesn't seem to be as capable of producing as much or as making plays on his own.
