He's been solid. Has a few brain farts, but everyone else is screwing up more so it's not really an issue. I wish he didn't take about 15 minutes to get a shot off, he had an opportunity for a one timer that became a regular shot against a prepared goalie. He just held it forever.

This defensive corps looks lost.

They have since Lavy has been coaching. His system requires them to be very active and then they get lost in it all.

I'd amend that to say "since Pronger went down."

True, Pronger was a very special player out there. It sucks things went down the way they did.

Side note but defense related, someone tried to convince me last night that the Predators would trade Shea Weber next year for a package centered around Matt Read and... Tye McGinn? I had to bite my tongue.

Coburn was last night. Especially on the Zajac goal.

I don't think we'll really to be able to judge Schenn's game properly until after we see what we get when we trade him.

His skating, even without a real training camp, is vastly better than I expected. His offensive abilities seem to mirror more of what I expected versus what his stats last year would have suggested. If this is the starting point and there's room to grow, I will be extremely pleased with this trade.

I honestly think Schenn has been our best dman over the course of the first 4 games (and maybe even in each of the 4 individually). I like his positioning (thus far). I like his physicallity. Heck, I even like his little 30 degree slap shot that he does which seems a bit harder than a normal wrister, but with the same effect.

I also think he had another good game last night, but I just wish he improved on his passing. I remember quite a few of his passes being either inaccurate or intercepted, but maybe they also just stood out more because he played well otherwise.

I'm liking what I've seen from Schenn so far. He's taking the advice of Pronger and Timonen and is playing just a safe game and letting the game come to him. Instead of chasing all the time for the big hit, he's allowing the game to come to him so he can lower the boom without being out of position. He's getting it and the more he listens to what they're telling him, you can see that he's becoming more and more comfortable and more and more confident in his game.

Kevin McCarthy and John Paddock have done a real good job as well coaching Schenn and that should be mentioned as well.

I'm liking what I've seen so far and think he will only get better. He was pinching in last night perfectly and though he missed on some, he had some crisp dead-on passes. I can't wait till he feels comfortable enough to shoot quicker, he seems a little hesitant. I'm happy with his play thoughand he's just 23.

Schenn has been good the past two games. I think he'll have a good season for us

If it wasn't for how great Grossmann played last night, Luke would've been a star. Really solid hits, moving his feet and the puck. His passing's been good too. A couple times he made the smart, safe play to make sure and missed his man. I'll take that anytime. If he keeps playing like this, he will be an important part of this team for a long time.

Seriously glad to hear. Usually when a team trades a player you almost want to see them fail, but in Luke's case I hope he rips it up for you guys. I really liked him in TO and sadly he was misused (among many others) by Ron Wilson.

I hope you guys play Pittsburgh again this year with Schenn on D. I loved that series last year.

Luke seems to be playing the game the smart way. No panic just letting the game come to him. He looks in much better shape than the past and he has that snarl in his game I like. Shame about Mez cause I thought our top five defensemen were pretty good as a unit.
