As far as Schroder goes I think he will have to be really good to hold down his spot for the full season.
My guess is AV and GMMG still believe the 3rd line should be a more traditional checking unit and would like to upgrade that spot either through the Luongo trade or at the deadline.
That scenario pushes Schroder back to the AHL as injury depth, which is perfectly fine in the short term. Most young players are well served by moving up and down the first few years of their NHL career.
More or less agree. The one thing that could allow Schroeder to fit that scheme is to put him at the 2C and push Kesler to the wing. I no longer think this is as unlikely as I once did.
