I personally want to see Schenn on the wing mainly because I don't want to see Couturier ending up like Jordan Staal
playing third line minutes with third line players and being surroundedby what if's.
I don't know enough about Schenn playing at center/wing however to know if he is wasted at wing but assuming he picks up and enjoys playing on the wing a line with him Couturier and Simmonds could be one hell of a line, packs a scoring punch and would shut down nealry every other line in the league.
Also leaving Briere at center and moving Schenn to wing gives Voracek space to move up lines possibly onto the first with Giroux/Hartnell to replace Jagr.
Obviously these are all just ideas I'm floating around, so what do you guys reckon?
We still don't know what type of player Coots is. He may be another Jordan Stall or he may be more of a third line shut down center. I think thats still up for debate, but him centering a third line this years is a good thing, imo.
