Yep, Schenn has put up similar numbers to Coburn from the age of 18-23 as Coburn age 23-28, and also Schenn has played a heck of a lot less minutes over that time (admittedly due to his inconsistency... he has had 3 years where he was a 22 minute, 20-25 point D man and 2 years where he was a 16-18 minute, 15 point D man.) A lot of D men don't get in the league until they are 22-24.

If Schenn can play as he did last year, 3 years ago or his first year in the league consistently, 22+ minutes a night, 25 point while being very solid in his own end, that is a pretty damn valuable asset to have on your blueline when his age is considered, guys like that also don't cost the world, but contribute.
