Voracek was the reason Giroux bounced back the second half of last season, so it is difficult to put to much blame on Voracek, but he has been much worse this year. Hartnell is looking more and more like a lost cause.

I really like when Schenn puts himself in a scoring position and gets it off quick or is in front of the net or just delivering a lined up body check. The rest of his game is below average IMO. He is horrible winning battles and carrying the puck on his stick through traffic. I really do not see him as a natural center.

I would like them to try Schenn with Giroux for 20 games and not deviate. It seems they have had little patience trying him there in the past, whereas Hartnell sticks on the shear hope he can be the player he was two years ago. Of course that leaves Hartnell - Vinny - Simmonds which isn't all that awe inspiring. I do think people on here are a little too hard on Simmonds though.
