Schenn on the other hand I would like in Simmonds spot on the second pp unit. Like you said he does get those greasy goals and he isn't afraid to get knocked around a bit.
Something like Kimmo on the back end, Read/Vinny on the sides, Schenn up front and chest snipe in the middle (Umby).
I'm strictly talking about his shot not the rest of his offensive game.
You wouldn't be utilizing Schenn's shot by putting him strictly in front of the net. He can get the greasy goals but that's sort of an added bonus on top of that.
Umberger actually played in front of the net in Columbus last year. He had 8PP goals but that was all with their top unit which was pretty good so not sure if he could replicate that but I would wager that's where he'll go on the second unit.
