Great point. He looked like a 5'8 forward against the Flames but after that he handled himself extremely well and I notice he's been winning puck battles against guys like Scuderi, Vlasic, and Allen guys much bigger with more experience than him.
I don't want to say he's better than Hodgson but even compared to last year, Schroeder has impressed me more so far. Though Hodgson was given a primarily offensive role which he lit it up which I don't think Schroeder will see the same opportunity, we are looking at a guy who has so far been meeting his expectations from what I heard of him on draft day.
