As for the whole shot discussion, it baffles me that there are some NHL players with such terrible shots. And this isn't necessarily directed at Schenn, but he does have a very slow release. Now, Grossmann on the other hand... How do you play hockey your whole life and still shoot like you just picked up a hockey stick yesterday?
The only reason I can think is he should shoot right instead of left!

I never played apart from a bit of roller hockey... but my brother does, and he naturally picks a stick up right handed... but found he could do everything just as well left handed; but had a better slapshot, so while he played right handed for the first six months he played he then switched to left, as he plays D so the shot makes him twice as dangerous.
