He's playing as well or better than other top prospects at ES statistically — I posted the stats on the previous page. So if we're going to criticize his stats, let's at least consider where the problem is: PP. Well, none of the other guys that have typically been good PP players are putting up any PP points either. Ebbett has 1 PP point all season and he was dynamite in the past.

Hell, even with his lack of production on PP, he's got 12 points in last 16 games at ES which is not far from PPG. He had a dry spell the first five games and since then he's been leading the Wolves in scoring. And all this is with Wolves being the 5th lowest scoring team in the league and without playing with Kassian or Sterling, the other two top scorers.

And before you go agreeing with orcatown, maybe read what he had to say about Hodgson before he made the NHL. It was the exact same narrative as for Schroeder (replace too small with too slow).

None of this makes him a lock to make the NHL, let alone contribute there. I just find the argument that Schroeder has been underwhelming to be extremely dubious considering he's 1 point behind Sterling, leading the team in ES scoring, leading the team in goals, and doing that while not getting any ice-time with the other 2 top scorers.
