Schroeder's game is out thinking his opposition. Thinking two three maybe four steps ahead. The old he is playing chess and the others checkers senerio. Several times he would carry the puck in only to find his line mates either changing, going straight to the net or something fairly one dimensional. Instead of dishing it off to a Barriball or Stoa and making his own move to the net. Schroeder was left holding the puck trying to make the play happen.

When a college kid has to make an anouncment he is not leaving the program. You can only imagine the pressure and questions he was getting around campus and from reporters. He left for the WJCs. Winning gold gave him life back. By the time we got Cepis and Buddish found his game. It was allready to little to late.

For his size. He works hard and goes into traffic areas. He plays with his head up and avoids alot of hits. His freshmen year, when he was happy. He threw his weight around a lot more.

If this was a lesson year. And lesson learned. You guys got a nice find.
