So Luke Schenn has played 705 games in the NHL, and he is 28.  Lets say he manages to play 5 more years.  He'll have a shot at getting to 1000 games by the time he is 33. 

To put that in to perspective, Ovechkin's next game is his 1000th, and he is 32. 

Funny how Schenn has managed to consistently get put in to a lineup over the years.

I suppose. Although the issue with him here was he was never going to be the perfect 2/3 guy he was sold as and that would justify his draft spot.

But the idea that he would carve out a solid career as a Polak type? I buy it.

Yeah, his draft position does play in to this.  I mean if you look at a guy like Hainsey though, he is 37, and he'll cross the 1000 game mark some time next season.  I guess Hainsey got better over time, and Schenn started strong, but is now carving out an NHL career playing in a 5-6 role.

Schenn couldn't make the Coyote's lineup on a regular basis, he's done.  Great guy but the game has passed him by.

I thought the narrative on Schenn was that he was probably a guy who would have excelled in the old NHL during the clutch and grab era.  His lack of speed is what limits him as a top defensive player.

Polak was actually pretty good against the Bruins. Funny thing he lead the team in plus/minus lol.. We need a Polak type guy but with better hands for getting the puck out.

He should join the Bruins then, so he can get away with it. :P

Smart idea! He could then also add punching people in the face and body slams to the ice to his repertoire.
