how long of a list can you get me of players who had steady nhl careers who dont play gritty, dont hit and play his style and his size and dont absolutely dominate the early leagues (and almost immediately)? who can't beat guys one on one, who dont stickhandle better than anyone else by a mile
But your qualification for dominate is strange. You will only accept dominating at both ES and PP. I've already provided a link that showed that as far as translating NHL output to the AHL, ES goal production is the most accurate stat.

Schroeder's current ES output should be considered dominating, afterall ignoring the Oilers players (Eberle, Hall, RNH, Schultz) he's in the Top 10 for ES scoring.

So from that we can either take the pessimistic view that he sucks on the PP or the optimistic one that he's just unlucky to be playing on a team that has had the worst PP in the league for 3 years running. After all, Hodgson couldn't do much with that PP either.

Your problem is that your proofs are circular and you ignore anything that is presented contrary to your opinion, no matter how solidly it's backed up.
