It goes both ways. Not just praise, which is what some would advocate here.
I don't think there's anything wrong with criticizing players when it's grounded in reality. There's been a decent amount of it, hell I've ripped Schroeder for a few games this year. Unfortunately what we usually get is outbursts by the same expected people who throw out ridiculous statements like that Kassian should be hitting every second shift or that production at ES is not a proof of anything and should be ignored.

For all the defending of Schroeder that I do, I've said before that he's only #5 on my list of Canucks' prospects (behind Corrado actually).

Well said and it's definitely something we get a lot of around here.
