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.
Absolutely - was on the perimeter and doing little when on the wing. Got tied up in puck battles along the boards which negated his strongest attribute - his speed. Idea of playing wing is senseless given the history.

Noted that the never informed Sekeres musing, like he had actually studied the situation, that he saw Schroeder ultimately on the wing. This, to me, goes back to the Parise comparisons which were never based on much other than that both Schroeder and Parise were smaller and both Americans
