Get used to seeing his face because unless we pick up a veteran like Arnott... you are looking at our 2nd line centre for the first half of the season.
I think Schroeder will be given a shot for a few games at least. Whether he can get the job done is another thing. GIven the shortened season and diminished margin for error, you'd have to imagine all experiments (i.e. Schroeder/Lapierre on the second line) will be on a very short leash.
Shiznak at his best:
Considering their cap hit and age, I'd still take Bonino over Kesler.

Schroeder will get 11-14 minutes of pure offense, much like Cody did.

Gillis cautioned that in a sprint-to-the-finish kind of season that is about to start, it might be more difficult for young, inexperienced players to crack the lineup.
"You don't have the luxury of a full season to experiment," Gillis said. "We were planning to introduce a number of young players, now I am not sure how that is going to work out with a shortened schedule.
"Obviously, with a 48-game schedule you don't have any room for experimentation or introduction unless the player is ready to play and ready to contribute. That is going to change the dynamics not only for us but for every team in the league. We are going to have to go with our best players every night no matter what to make sure we get into the playoffs and have an opportunity to advance."
