Let's not get crazy now guys.

I see some of Zach Parise in Schroeder, a tank of a player for his size and a solid player for the future for Hodgson/Grabner and company.

This sort of has some of that Aaron Rodgers feel to it, a supposed top 10 pick falling all the way down to the 20's when Green Bay picked him up, so far a nice steal for them.

If you believe some of the minnesota and american WJC fans who have seen him quite a bit, they say he's on par with Duchene/Kane/Schenn. And again the question marks he has are the same that Parise had.

That was his first appearance at the WJC. And in college? What the hell is that guy thinking? Schroeder was a beast in college as an 18 year old.

I'm willing to bet that Jordan still has a couple more inches to grow. And when he does, everyone not named Vancouver can suck it.

NHL Head Amateur Scout EJ Maguire:

Schroeder is "destined for stardom in the NHL"


Nice.

Looks like we could grab Elliott in the 2nd round.

Perhaps trade up in the 2nd using our 3rd or 4th?

Coming from someone who actually watched a few Gopher games this year (not many though, I admit) -- Schroeder definitely was a standout amongst the players on the ice.

He was very noticeable (in a good way) when he was on the ice. That's not something you can say for a lot of players.

This is interesting: (form nhl.com):

"The biggest surprise among the upper-body strength measurements was University of Minnesota center Jordan Schroeder. Despite measuring in at 5-8.25 and 175 pounds, he did 17 repetitions of 150 pounds on the bench press, one fewer than the leaders -- Saginaw right wing Jordan Szwarz, Erie center Ryan O'Reilly and Swedish forward Carl Klingberg"

So he's playing NCAA next season?
When's the earliest he can jump to the NHL?

Take back what I said about no impact players being available by the 22nd pick.
This guy could be huge for Vancouver in a few years.
I also think Gillis should trade up to get Elliott...there aren't a lot of offensive dmen left and Elliott is a very smart kid...which is something Gillis loves...

Seriously speaking where does this leave our Center depth down the line? I mean Schroeder has the potential to reach as high as a 1st line centerman and with that our center depth would be Henrik, Kesler, Hodgson and Schroeder with that said you would think one of them would have to leave?

Actually that's not confirmed he could play in Everett next year, and there's even some reports that he could be NHL ready next year.

I can't believe there is guy named Ryan O'Reilly eligible to be drafted.......somebody better take him before he gets pissed off and manipulates Vern Schillinger into making a gm into his bit$%

I'd love to see exactly this happen. We do need quantity of prospects but if you have the opportunity to leave the draft with Schroeder + Elliot (or the other quality guys who will be available in the early 2nd), do it.
