I can deal with all of that, though I'm not wild about the JVR - Schenn - Simmonds line. I really think you'd be leveraging Schenn's biggest strength matching him up with the playmaker like Giroux. I don't see him being the playmaker to JVR (who in my opinion is more of a balanced guy, power forward type with that size and goals to assists ratio of 11:13), and Simmonds is also that scrappy, power forward. To me that's a balanced guy at left wing, a scorer at center in Schenn, and a muck and grind guy who probably overachieved this year in the scoring department in Simmonds. I can't see the combination having a ton of cohesiveness, but I've been wrong before. I'll tell you what though, that'd be a hell of a fun YOUNG line to watch.
