If we have learned anything from this teams failures over the past two playoffs, it's that the Canucks need to add more snipers and size to their top six. I don't really think taking an undersized forward with limited offensive potential and playing him away from his natural position is the answer.
At this point, I think it would be unwise to expect Schroeder to be an every day player next season. If he comes into camp and surpasses our expectations, then that's great. If not, then he can compete with guys like Jensen and Lain for depth positions in the bottom six.
Gillis already greased those skids though.
Devloping young players at the NHL level was the quote, Schroeder is a young player ready for an opportunity. Same as Corrado, Kassian, and maybe some of the grindy prospects like Lain and Archibald.
Not sure how he has limited offensive ability either.
