But he has also improved a lot in that regard since then so it's hard to say how he would do now.

I've been saying this for the longest time that on paper and in theory, Schroeder is perfectly suited for Keslers wing because he is fast, can keep up with Kes and a great playmaker. But with what I've seen of Schroeder on the wing, theory may not match up with reality.
You guys are great, thanks. I hope we get to see the two of them, and ideally Booth, together at some point this season.
