Brayden Schenn

Hey guys, what do you make of Schenn this year. Is it his coming out party? Is he to the the point where the Flyers will be relying heavily on him next season or still more of a 2nd/3rd line player helping out the bigger guns.

Probably a little bit of both. He won't be expected to step up and be one of the guys to carry the offense, but he should start to show some more production. As of right now, I think a lot of people think he'll start the season at wing with Lecavalier and Simmonds. But if his play is deserving, I think he'll get some time on the top line with Giroux and Voracek. I just think his skill set fits that line more than Hartnell's.

I think he will be 2nd line LW with Vinny L as his center. I feel he will be average/above average #2 LW this year.

He was a PPG player for a couple of weeks last season and then just fell off completely. Hopefully not playing on a line with Briere will help his production.

I think its pretty telling that the Flyers brought in Lecavalier. They don't think Couturier or Schenn are ready or up for it. Gives us amazing center depth at the same time.

I have this sneaky suspicion that he and Simmonds are going to be pretty awesome with Lecavalier in the middle.

I'd still rather see him as a centerman.

Hartnell - Giroux - Lecavalier
Simmonds - Schenn - Voracek

would be my favourite top6 configuration right now.

If Voracek can continue in his beast mode from last season and Lecavalier clicks with Giroux, we could end up having two bonafite first lines.

We have 2 bona fide 1st lines how ever you split our top 6, however in your case, i'd put Giroux on the wing and Vinny would be the centerman.

But i rather go with the Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek; Simmonds - Vinny - Schenn; combo, unless Schenn proves he can win more faceoffs.

I have always thought Schenn is a much better center than he is a winger. With Lecavalier in the fold now, it's tough to find a place for him at center, obviously. I think it will take a couple of months to figure out which line combos work best, but I do think Schenn will fit nicely with eithe Vinny or Giroux, so hopefully he can step up his game this season. I love the kid, but I have to be honest, I have been slightly disappointed with what I've seen from him so far. Being forced to the wing and having inconsistent line mates is part of the problem, but I also think he needs to do more to help himself.

Given how bad Schenn and Couturier are at faceoffs, they would need to improve significantly to displace LeCavalier from the 2C slot in the short term.

With decent minutes and quality linemates he can hit 50-60 points no problem next season.

As long as Schenn and Couturier receive consistent PP minutes as well as 1st and 2nd line opportunities they will develop just fine. The skill is there.

Not just consistent pp time but just ice time in general. B Schenn was 8th among forwards in avg ice time/game last season. That needs to improve if he's gonna develop into the player we all hope he does.

I'd be surprised if Schenn and Couturier weren't both 17-18min/game players this season. Tha's right in line with every forward besides Giroux who logs in the 20+ area. I'd imagine Jake is right behind G this season in the 18-20 range depending on the PK units.

Read was 2nd to G last season just over 18 minutes a night and Jake was 3rd with 17.25 or something. I'd be ecstatic if Schenn and Couts were in that rage but I just don't see it happening with the acquisition of Vinny and Simmer and Hartnell ahead of them in terms of pp time and stuff. There simply isn't enough time to go around. I would actually prefer in G be taken off the pk this year to lessen his load. I know that doesn't free up more space for the young guys but I'm just saying.

I felt like Voracek had his best stretches last year playing beside Schenn. Wouldn't mind Jake bumping to 2RW and Vinny playing 1RW to start.

Schenn did well last year. 5th on the team in points. More of a setup guy than a goal scorer. He'll be fine.

Playing a big center who's good at faceoffs on his least preferred wing is a bad idea.

I think that's what Lavy said too. Let's see how the camp chemistry goes.

Hartnell played really well with Schenn and Simmonds too.

We expect this, with Vinnie at 2C:

19-28-93
10-40-17


We could have two really good scoring lines, if Giroux clicks with Vinnie the way he did with Jagr.

19-28-40
17-10-93 Simmonds can play LW or RW.


The third option is move Schenn up to 1LW with G:

10-28-93
19-40-17 which would be a tough 2nd line to play against.

Camp chemistry will have a lot to do with it.

All in all, I'll be happy with our top 6 as long as they play/produce on a consistent basis.
Seeing the possibilities I like chances of that happening.

I expect him as the #2 LW with Lecavalier and getting time on the (hopefully improved) 2nd PP unit. I figure if he plays 80 games he'll probably finish with 20 goals and 50-60 points if everything falls into place.

The more I watch Brayden, the more I see him developing into a Nathan Horton type. He might have more offense than Horton, but their physical game and skating style is very similar.

I could see a 30 goal - 60 point season out of Schenn. At the same time, I can also see him being used as possible trade bait for a young, unsigned defenseman.....

So it's settled then; Schenn is the best Center on the team and Giroux is pretty meh. I knew it!
