The guys played 3 NHL games and hes already a better player defensively than Hodgson.
Yep. I remember watching Schroede light the world juniors up with JVR and Wilson, and said to myself I would envy the team who took this kid. Lo and behold it was us. I remember when Luongo was making the pick for us I was yelling "Schroeder, Schroeder, Schroeder" And my wish came true
