I have no doubt that Jordan Schroeder will make the team to start the season and I feel like he'll surprise a lot of people/doubters. I expect him to play the Cody Hodgson role of last season, before he got traded, and do just as well if not better.

I feel that people tend to focus on his size as a deterent from him being a NHL player but forget that in his draft year, many people believed his skillset was that of a top 5 pick. This kid has some real dynamic skill that can translate to the NHL. He has been developed properly the last 2 years in the AHL and has learned to play a reliable 2 way game.

Our team severely lacks playmakers outside of the Sedin twins and one of his strongest assets is his vision and passing abilities. I think you'll see him on the 2nd unit PP much like Hodgson and be effective.

I think in terms of skillsets, he is on par with a guy like Cody Hodgson. But he is a much stronger skater in all facets.

Tons of small players in the NHL have been successful. No reason why Schroeder can't if given a fair shake.

I agree.

He's a good young player.

I think out of all our prospects he has best pure offensive skillset, Jensen comes close but Schreoder's offensive game is more dynamic and I think he has game breaking offensive ability. He just has to continue to develop. And realize his potential.

No Reason to count this guy out, I'm not 100% sure if he is ready yet but I believe he might be and we will see.

I'm super excited to see him come September.

not that im to judge considering I've barley seen him play, but if he was really top 5 quality wouldn't he have made the team by now? or be racking some serious points in the Ahl?? i seriously doubt this kid will be as good as hodgson.

I think your opinion on Schroeder might be slightly bias.

He had a good year in the AHL, I'd maybe give him a few games in the NHL to see how he handles that. But we don't need him right now anyway and I think if you can't excel in the AHL, what chance do you have in a league offers the best players in the world?

He had a good year, 21 Goals, 41 points, Better than Coho had in the AHL.

He did have top 5 quality offensive ability but players take longer than other to develop, regardless, this was expected, I don't think Managment expected him to be alot more than he is right now.

He had an adjustment year from University to the A in 10-11 and he had a good year last year in Chicago, and next year if he doesn't crack the line-up he will go down there and be a really important offensive player for the Wolves.

I think he is still a year behind Hodgson was at this point. I expect him to see come time with the big club this season, and to not be too out of place. However I don't expect him to have much of an impact until next season at the earliest.

VOTE FOR EDLER!

And might as well vote for Daniel, Henrik, Kesler, Luongo and..... I guess Aaron Rome?

Statswise, he looks good. What the stats don't tell you is that Schroeder was used for all situations and has developed a more complete skill-set than CoHo did. Schroeder is will have a long look at for this years team, whether he's filling Kesler's void or not.

That's not necessarily true. Tons of guys have had underwhelming AHL season and gone on to be very successful in the NHL.

Hooray for positivity on these forums! I award you 5 stars and a thumbs up. :)

I very much hope, as you do, that Schroeder will come in and wow people. I hope Kassian does really well at some point too if for nothing else than to shut all of the people up who are still crying about Hodgson leaving.

Adam Henrique didn't make the Devils out of pre-season, and that was even with Zajac out. Marchand didn't make the Bruins out of camp at the same age Schroeder is now. There are countless other examples, like Mcdonagh in NY, Tortz said sometimes things happen by accident.

He just needs a shot with some consistent minutes, playing with good players. With Kesler out, he'll get just that.

Like who, exactly? I think it's rare that a player is average in the AHL yet a better player in the NHL. Very rare.

Hoping for the exception while thinking they are the rule is almost sure to disappoint. #brandonreid

Great post. I like how positive you are about Jordan. Hes our first rounder and hes got skill. I hope he does even better than we thought Cody would do. I hope he turns into Martin St Louis . Good for us.

Difference is Marty owned the AHL.

I'm predicting more of Gionta-type success at best.

As much as I like Schroeder, he would have to have taken huge leaps in his development this offseason if he plans to beat out Ebbett for that roster spot... I dont see them both on the team at the same time.. but i could be wrong
