He also struggles to get his shot past the D-men because as DtS mentioned, he has no fancy stickhandling moves to seperate himself. Also while he is a good skater he is not exactly explosive out there. I don't think I've seen him burn a single D-man with his speed yet.

He is a decent stop gap, but he needs to improve his offensive game by leaps and bounds if he can be a top six forward on a good NHL team. Otherwise he's just a guy.
Are you implying that Schroeder isn't going to be the next Patty Kane?!
