Crazy that it took this long to get him into a shootout.

I was so sure he was going to pot his first there. The guy has had some seriously good looks.

You are going to have to put up your four lines and have them EXACTLY MATCH in order to collect bud.

I'm having a hard time trying to think of a player past or present that Schroeder resembles. Anyone have any ideas? A more defensively oriented Brendan Morrison comes to mind. That's not to say Morrison was bad defensively... Far from it, but Schroeder looks so composed defensively. His adjustment to the NHL has been seamless.

For style comparables maybe Morrison, or even maybe Marc Savard in terms of an offensive style.

I think Morrison is actually a very good comparable. Solid at both ends with some offensive tricks up his sleeve. Surprisingly combative for his size, as well.

Leddy is the player the Wild drafted first round where everyone in Minny wanted them to draft Schroeder, who then was picked by us.

Leddy made the Show surprisingly early, and that as a D on a really good team (after he was traded for a bag of pucks by the Wild). But Schroeder has finally made it now, in style.

I really like Schroeder's play so far, he just needs to keep his feet moving in the offensive zone. Noticed a few times tonight where something could have been made if he wasn't planted in 1 post & watching. Thats my biggest beef. Great sauce tonight! his compete level is fantastic & hounds the puck like a dog.

Yeah, that saucer was nuts. That's a pretty long pass, well off the ice...drops it in flat right on the guy's stick. Very nice.

Morrison - Schroeder
Bertuzzi - Kassian
Naslund - Jensen?

It's becoming more of a possibility by the day.

Schroeder has been solid all around. Not so worried about points, he looks good out there and they will come.

Next year he will be that much better with that exposure to the NHL, crazy.

I think Morrison was a better goal-scorer than Schroeder will prove to be. He also had amazing line mates to help him rack up the assists. Of course I hope I'm wrong about the goal-scoring prediction.

If he keeps developing then he has the potential to be a better goal scorer than Morrison. Schroeder has a very good shot, his problem is that he doesn't use it enough and when he does he tries to pick the corners too much. He also has a wicked slapper that's not far behind Hodgson's. But in all likelihood, you're right.

The goal for JS right now is to keep working hard, to listen to what AV is teaching him and to use every off-season to its maximum. I think there's a lot of room for development there — he's smart, hardworking, and talented.

Morrison was every bit as promising defensively early on. He was touted as a guy who could win a Selke one day.

It's actually a pretty perfect comparable.

Yeah just think about were Kassian and Hodgson when they both played for us (Kass last year, Hodgson in 10/11)

Schroeder is by far better than both, if Schroeder can come back next year and be as improved as they were/are in their 2nd years, man we will have something really nice in him, and the wait will finally have paid off.

Sucks our second PP unit isn't great, well our PP in general isn't great but that's a topic for another day, but I think if our PP was better, we'd see Schroeder with more points. He has great vision, and he seems to be getting more confidence as each game wears on. Haven't really seen what he can do on the PP yet as we rarely get set up for any chances, if at all with that second unit.

I like what I'm seeing from Schroeder. Solid player defensively too.

In terms of players Gillis has drafted that have made the team, I get the feeling we can mark down number two.

I like how Jordan's thread has an exclamation mark.

He's so close to potting his first. He has great vision and very good hockey sense. That's not exactly something you can teach so he already has that going for him. Really want him to succeed(obviously) but seems like a great kid too. Little guy too against the odds.

Couldn't agree more.

I gota say though, Schroeder and Raymond look great together. Just need someone to really seal that line together. Someone big and fast.... wait how about Kassian? If his chemistry does dry up with the Sedin's that is always an option.


Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Booth - Kesler - Burrows
Raymond - Schroeder - Hansen
Lapierre - Malhotra - Higgins
Weise, Volpatti

...is probably a better lineup though.

Hmmm...someone Big and Fast you say? Maybe someone equally worthy of sheltering somewhat defensively as a small youngster like Schroeder?

Booth. Schroeder and David Booth on paper at least, look like such an outstanding combination for both of them.
