The big thing that Kassian has over Schroeder is size though. If they can both put up identical offensive numbers Kassian is a much more unique prospect in that there are few with his size, skill and meanness. I'm hoping that Schroeder can continue to work on his defence so that he can potentially slide in up and down the lineup.
I don't disagree that given the same production, Kassian is a more attractive prospect but that's expected given his draft position. But it's not as if the margin between the two of them is as big as to say one is a promising prospect and the other is a total worthless piece of crap, which a lot of people seem to be doing. Besides, they both have things they're better at than the other guy — it's not as if Kassian is just flat out better at everything.
I've said before, Schroeder is #5 on my list (Kassian, Lack, Jensen, Corrado... Tanev doesn't count, otherwise he would be behind Kassian, probably), so it's not as if I'm totally crazy even though the way I defend Schroeder is might seem like it.
