Brayden Schenn is going to Manchester

I know people are curious about this, so here's the info.

Brayden's team, Saskatoon, is trailing 2-0 in their second round series.

If Saskatoon is eliminated, Schenn would be available to the Kings by game five of the Kings' first round series at the latest. If they are swept, for example, he'd be available sooner. Anywhere from April 13th through April 20th.

Personally I'm really conflicted about the Kings thrusting Brayden into the playoffs if given the option. It could be a disaster for his development. It could also be a boost. Jury is out for me on that one.

At the same time, the Kings should ice the best team possible, and there is no question that Brayden would improve the team.

If they were to get swept, he could be here on time for Game 1. Same for Justin Williams (being ready for game 1) and hopefully Scott Parse lol.. I'd love to see Clifford-Schenn-Simmonds line wow

But it would most likely be something like

Penner-Schenn-Williams
Smyth-Stoll-Brown
Clifford-Handzus-Simmonds
Ponikarovsky-Lewis-Richardson

I would honestly let him play for Manchester instead unless we were somehow dominating the Canucks in some miracle way. No sense in burning a year of his deal to give him a game or two of "experience" when he will likely be demoted to bottom 6 and play like a combined 24 minutes of playoff time.

Been saying all along that BSchenn would help our PP, I dont care were he plays 5 on 5. I would give him a shot at QBing as the Kings are obviously desperate in that area right now.

Parse *should* be ready for at least game 3. I'm hoping the harness thing works out for Williams.


If Schenn is a go, I'd view our center situation as....

1A
1B
1C
4


...with Handzus, Schenn, and Stoll getting equal minutes in a type of "rolling lines" capacity. That might give us an advantage over Vancouver, to not have any one line as our #1 line.

What could have possibly given you any indication that Parse will be back by game 3?

He's been skating for while now, and at least 10 days ago he proclaimed he "wasn't 100%". That tells me he's very, very close.

All of that, and the fact that he's not even participating in full practices, should point your toward the opposite conclusion...

Yep... Parse was supposed to be back in February. That means complications from his hip surgery. If he's STILL not 100%, when he was supposed to be 100% two months ago, that's not a good sign.

I'm still conflicted about that possibility, but you've got to think that Brayden would welcome the opportunity. That said, it screams rushing the kid which is totally against everything about Dean's player development philosophy.

So what's the timetable on the return of Allison and Deadmarsh?

As soon as Saskatoon is eliminated, we should call him up. He doesn't even need to play heavy minutes. Give him 8-10 minutes a game + PP time. He's still one of our most skilled players even though he's inexperienced.

Anybody see Parse walk onto the ice last night to had the fan his jersey? He was hobbling pretty bad, I doubt he's back this season.

I feel that Schenn is absolutely ready to play. A few bounces go his away and Schenner has about 5 goals in the 9 games he played in the beginning of the season. He performed so well in the WJCs and had all year to get better..

Down with Saskatoon.

Schenn deserves playoff minutes. Will show him that the organization has a belief in him which is a great thing. Hopefully it happens quickly.

I was all about Schenn coming up ASAP. Also feel he'll be fine playing in the playoffs. Especially in a "nothing to lose" situation like the Kings are in.

Then I read this:

If him being in the playoffs means we lose a whole year of his contract then forget it. We'll wait til next year.

Does it burn a year? For the life of me I can't seem to find out!

It's not uncommon for rookies to get their first call-up in the playoffs....

I think a chance at the cup, playoff experience is worth more than just a year off his contract.

Except there is little chance at the cup. Let's be real.

He'll get plenty of playoff experience in the coming years.

The more I think about it, it makes sense for AEG to want to burn a year since he has zero chance of hitting his bonuses this year. The new CBA will be in place by the time he needs a new contract anyways.

It's also one less year for him to play well enough to command big money. Burning a year off his deal is irrelevant. If he plays well enough for that to be important in so far as having to pay him more, then the team would be in great shape.

Let's be real(er)... Cup chances don't grow on trees. I realize there's an above average chance the Kings make the playoffs for a lot of years to come, but you don't throw away opportunities like this just because odds aren't great. Any team can get a hot goalie, get lucky and make a run.

I am real, you got to believe. By doing this even if we don't win the cup, you gotta think it's going to make the players hungrier for next year.
