Brayden Schenn 2010/11

He played one game last season, but, what do you think of his first 3 games this season?

I like the fact that he get scoring chance every games, maybe a lack of finishing which is probably cause by him being nervous and trying too much.

I don't think anybody has doubt about Schenn staying in LA for the whole year, I'd be pretty shock to see him go back in the juniors.

Do you think we'll see him with more offensive linemates at even strenght anytime soon?

I think he will stay our 4th line center unless there is an injury, but, he is getting PP time w/ the likes of Kopitar and Doughty so that is where I think he should see most of his key offensive line mates. Also, dont forget that when Kopi took the stick to the chops and needed emrgency dental work, Schenn was bumped up and played on the 1st line.

This is the way I see things happening for this season. With Handzus being UFA at the end of the season, it's probably next season that Schenn will get a good shot as the 2nd line center of the team.

Nice guy to have around if Stoll or Handzus gets hurt.

I guess Trevor Lewis might have to wait another year.

Loving his game at the moment.

Sure he hasn't scored any goals but the time will come. He's getting a lot of good opportunities, but he isn't capitalizing on them.

I watched him very carefully yesterday at the game. He is a hard working kid. Skates well and has the hockey IQ, similar to DD. If he has a finishing move, he can easily notch up 30 goals a season. I do have high expectations for him this season. I think he'll do just fine.

Clifford-Schenn-Simmonds

Agreed. I just hope he's taking pointers on how to win faceoffs from Stoll before Stoll moves on.

The way he's coming out the gate. I wouldn't be surprised to see him centering 2nd line by the end of this season.

I think he's playing well because his responsibility is being limited. Fourth line ice time, a few shifts on the powerplay here and there. I think that to put him on the first line right now will be setting him up to fail. Slow and steady.

B. Schenn is a can't miss prospect. His Hockey instincts are up there with Doughty. He may never be a 30 goal scorer but he is a heart and soul type guy who just makes the team better. I think he's going to be a 50+ point player for years. He will be the perfect 2nd line center and when all said and done DL favorite player of all time.

I love this kid even more than I thought I would when we drafted him. He works hard anytime he steps on the ice, isn't afraid to get dirty standing in front of the net and in the corners and the puck seems to always be where he is. I think once he pots his first one, he'll go on a small scoring streak. He just needs to get the feel of scoring one and watch out!

I see a Schenn jersey owned in my household very soon. My husband loves him, too!

i like what i see so far... he didn't look bad in the couple of 1st line center shifts he took during rebuild-a-kopi either.

If/When Schenn moves up to the top 9 you'd want a great skating centerman like Trevor Lewis to play on the 4th line. I think he is a valuable asset in the new NHL, much like Brad Richardson is. I'm hoping he gets his chance sooner than later.

And this is coming from a guy who has always been disappointed with him.

Good point. It is wise to use the young guys in roles they can successfully fill right now rather than expecting the high-end projected finished product right away. Besides, having a 4th line made up of some combination of Richardson/Schenn/Clifford/Westgarth would be a huge improvement over the typical cast of characters we are used to seeing.

Leading up to the draft you heard a lot Mike Richards, Bryan Trottier, or even Mark Messier style comparisons thrown around. On our team Schenn was obviously labeled a number two guy when drafted because he'd be playing behind Kopitar in the immediate future. What people forget is(or maybe they just don't know) Schenn is, and still, considered a "1st line two-way center" prospect.

Playing with a lot of determination, knows where to positions himself to score points, making the most of his ice time. He's living up to everything so far.
