Put Schenn's trigger-pull with Giroux and Voracek's creativity and vision and you've instantly got yourself a more dangerous top line at ES.

None of the currently assembled ES lines are unimpeachable. Downie would be better used back on the Couturier line where he is a proven success. Lecavalier is a better center than Schenn. Schenn has a better one-timer for the top line than Raffl.
Schenn does not deserve top line minutes.
