I think it would have been far better for Schroeder to have battled in Junior hockey this year . It will be a major and difficult transition moving on to the AHL. From what I have seen Schroeder will have up his compete level a lot.
One of the main reasons the Nucks wanted Jordan to join the Silvertips is because Craig Hartsburg is the coach in Everett. Same with Connaughton with Hay and the Giants. Nucks like the coaching that the players would/have gotten with Hay and Hartsburg.

I think Jordan should have left Minnesota. Program has not done well lately. Connaughton has done great with the Giants this year. Too bad Schroeder didn't join him in the WHL.
