I don't remember who said it, I want to say Bob McKenzie but he said the difference between Stamkos and Hodgson was Stamkos' explosive speed. I don't think he meant Hodgson was in the same ballpark as Stamkos offensively though, my recollections tend to get hazy sometimes when I'm pulling stuff off the top of my head.

Schroeder has a good wrist shot, but yes I'd say shot not as good as Hodgson, but much better playmaker than Hodgson.
It was Bob McKenzie.
