I have a feeling it will be an issue, and I'd be very shocked to see him as our #3C going into the post season. Maybe I'm wrong and Schroeder dazzles us all including AV, I just don't think it's the most likely scenario. Schroeder hasn't even played an NHL game yet, atleast Hodgson had SOME experience the year prior before he was placed in such a critical role.
Can you point me to the articles by any chance? I'm going to discount MS since he always criticizes our prospects in the AHL, but even orcatown last season reported over and over that Hodgson's defensive play was weak (and if anything he was harsher than I was).

I think it was the Rampage towards the end of the season (not the playoffs), not sure if it was their last game against them or the one before. I have it myself, it's just a matter of finding the exact shift. He loses a face-off in the defensive zone, then lifts the guys stick right after and steals the puck, plays it to the D, the D turns it over, then Schroeder once again checks that same guy, lifts his stick and pressures him out of the zone. It was an impressive shift because of the complete size mismatch.
