I think his skill-set is more likely to help the team as the 1LW (where he is able to lean on more talented players) rather than continuing to struggle as the 2C where he compounds the team's ES scoring woes. He got more TOI than Raffl tonight anyway, especially at ES.
I agree. Schenn played his best when he keeps his game simple. They need to put him with players that will allow him to just forecheck and go to the net.

It isn't about desrves, its about getting the best out of a young player by putting him in a spot to succeed like they have done with Coots and Simmonds.
