Great minds think alike.

Sometimes the more 'skilled' player does NOT end up being the better pro.

In Hodgsons case, he was drafted higher in the first round, but his lack of upper body strength and speed make him nowhere near the kind of pro Schroeder can be.

The guys played 3 NHL games and hes already a better player defensively than Hodgson.
