Jordan Schroeder will surprise us like Hodgson

I hope Schroeder gets a shot at the 2C while Kesler is out. I'm just excited to have hockey back!

Im pumped to watch this kid, cant wait!

I was pumped when we got him late in the draft and im excited to see what he can do, hopefully he plays good enough so when kes comes back we have no choice but to keep him with the big club.

Uh, what does that mean? He will not get the ice time that his dad wants himto so he will whine and whinge and request a trade? No thanks man.

if shcroeder turns out- big sigh of relief-easier to swallow the coho trade and Gillis looks like less of an idiot- should have taken Johansson.

Hodgson didn't surprise me. He captained Team Canada at the WJC, I think Schroeder will though.

Hodgson in the WJC and with the Nucks was always playing with talented players with finish (Tavares, Higgins, Hansen,etc

Schroeder has never played with extremely talented players on his wings while in the AHL. Apart from Kassian, but even he doesn't play with Schroeder all the time.

If Schroeder sticks with the Canucks for the entire NHL season, how many points do you expect him to put up? (at an 82game pace)

I'm hoping for a 45 pt/82 game pace (15g,30a) while helping kill penalties, and playing a sound 2-way game on the 2nd/3rd line.

His skating is top notch and he works hard. I think he could at least fill in at a Raymond level at a lower cap hit. I could see him forming a checking line with Hansen and Higgins next year. I was a little bit disappointed with his offensive awareness. Like Raymond he has skill but doesn't really take charge in the offensive zone.

Hodgson didn't surprise me. I hope Schroeder will surprise me. He should get a shot on the 2nd line but I bet it will go to Lappy. It all depends on how much offence happens with Schroeder.

I don't have a good feeling about Schroeder. Don't see him sticking at all. Think we should move him at the first available opportunity.

Hope I'm wrong though.

I'm hoping he gets a real chance at the 2nd line center spot while Kesler is out. Lord knows Max Lapierre isn't really qualified to be a top-six player. He'll have some combination of Booth, Higgins, Raymond, Hansen on his wings which should help him out some.

Definite speed advantage over Hodgson. I think Schroeder will thrive playing with guys like Raymond and Hansen.

Speed kills.

Schroeder has to bring a rounded game like Ronning did.

His assets have to become apparent like Cliff did so well.

Cliff had an 85 point year with the Canucks.Jordan is barely scoring over half a ppg in the A.

He needs to get better ,otherwise,why are you putting out a five foot nine center on the ice?

Trade bait? Nobody but Minnesota will have an interest in him.

I think the kid will do just fine. There will be some bumps along the way, but he has the tools to succeed.

If there are any limitations to him, it would be that he is not the biggest guy in the world, and he has shown an inability (so far) to be able to play on the wing (should that become necessary).

regards,

G.

I'm really looking forward to seeing him, I think he sticks, cause he works really hard and is really determined to make the most of this opportunity, that's what is most important.

His speed will be a huge advantage he will have in sticking and he also is pretty good defensively (Which are 2 things he has over Coho in respect to playing on the 3rd line)

He is also really strong for his size both physically & on his skates, and he is also really elusive so I don't see him getting physically pushed around alot.

I'm excited for this I say he makes it, not sure what to expect in terms of points totals though, maybe 15-20 Points in a 48 games season?

Yeah I agree 100%. A guy like Schroeder is a pure playmaker, but sadly I don't think he's around enough good talent to rack up the points. Coming up to the Canucks, he will play with guys like Booth, Higgins, Burrows, etc. who all can finish. He will definetely pour on the assists. I suspect JS will surprise a lot of people here.

The only reason he makes it is so he does not get despondent.

5 foot nine players have to be exceptional to make the second line in the NHL.

Jordan is not exceptional at this stage,not even in the A.

Third or fourth line minutes for ten games and then a call up every15 games to keep his spirits up.
