I do not know a ton about Schroeder but it seems that his game was built around his speed and stickhandling. Both great things to have but looking over past scouting reports from back in 2009, there doesnt seem to be much else mentioned except for speed and puck handling. I read two and no mentions of hockey sense. (Hate to go only by two scouting reports, so if anyone feels that his hockey sense was an asset, please chime in)
I have always been a fan of the "off the chart" intelligent type hockey players so a bit bias with Gaudreau. I just feel that hockey IQ is the key to continuous development from one level to another.
