Breaking Down the Philadelphia Flyers: Brayden Schenn

Nice little primer on Brayden...look forward to seeing him become one of our core players in the not to distant future...

Nice tidbit about the #10....

Quote:
Schenn is a top-prospect for a reason; his skill set proves this and should make fans in orange and black excited. Schenn’s knack for goal scoring is second only to his abilities as a playmaker. He uses his size and strength to fight for pucks in the corners and to make room for himself in front of the net. Schenn’s high hockey I.Q. allows him to be as well rounded a player as a team could ask for. Great scorer and playmaker, shows tremendous vision on the ice, and by the way Flyers fans he isn’t afraid to drop the gloves when necessary.

The skies the limit for Schenn it seems, which is why many expect him to make the Flyers roster out of training camp this fall. Like I said earlier, Schenn is believed to be NHL ready and the Flyers hope so. The orange and black would love to see the return for Mike Richards paying dividends immediately

Fast Facts


- Schenn is signed through the 2013-14 season on an Entry Level deal

- Tied Canada’s record for goals scored in a game (4) in the 2011 World Junior Hockey Championships against Norway, a record he shares with Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux and former Flyer Simon Gagne

- Brayden’s older brother Luke Schenn is a defensemen for the Toronto Maple Leafs

- Schenn wears the #10 because his favorite player growing up was Pavel Bure

I just want the season to start now. Really want to see what this guy can do on the ice.

We could have our first ever Calder winner on our hands.

I guess they felt Luc Robitaille and his 84 pt rookie campaign deserved it more.

Even if he doesn't win...

Claude Giroux --->
James vanRiemsdyk --->
Sergei Bobrovsky --->
Brayden Schenn --->
Sean Couturier...

That's possibly 5 players in the running for ROY (even if they didn't/don't win in the end) in 5 years.

Not too shabby.

Yep even though Billy Barber got screwed by the new york media and vickers got the Calder when Barber was clearly the better of the two. I was freaking out to say the least.

The more I read about this kid, the more I want to take the over on our "40 pt season" prediction. But I also don't want to jump the gun. Playing with Simmonds and Read/Nodl/Talbot won't help his production a ton, but they aren't exactly unskilled schmucks.

What's wrong with Read? A lot of experts are predicting that if he makes it he could get 30 or 40 points.

Nothing at all, I hope to hell he impresses and makes the team. He's just 24 and has only proven himself in the NCAA (11 games in AHL was great, but a bit of a small sample size). He's the one I keep plugging in on the 3-LW because (aside from Couturier) he may have the best skill to compliment Schenn, without sacrificing defense.
