All that said, as 701 pointed out, Schroeder shot much more this past season. He should be able to score more as a result. Let's hope he translates some that to the NHL. Again, the key difference to me is the shot quality + shooting intent of Hodgson vs. the shot inaccuracy + preference to pass of Schroeder.
OK, I understand the point being made now. It seems like a bit of Schroeder's stock or value has dropped a bit since he was drafted. I think he is a bit underrated as a prospect. I hear nothing but good things about him last year in Chicago and how he's working on his defensive game too.
I really hope he breaks out to the NHL soon, we need more ELC players that can help the team significantly.
