I'm in no way a J.Shroeder hater but lets be real here. Every time I see him on the ice he looks way too small to be on the ice. Think all the way back to when Steve Kariya tried out for the Vancouver Canucks.

Save for the beautiful pass to Dale Weise last night, it has been rough sailing for Jordan. When he goes into a corner to battle for the puck he always gets mauled like he has no business being on a 4th line grinding shift. He clearly doesn't have the skillset to consistently pop in goals on a nightly basis.

I would seriously consider a long hard look at packaging him up. I'll eat crow if I'm wrong but I don't see Jordan lasting more than 2 more years in this league. I see a Ebbett journey man/ AHL/ Overseas career in Shroeder.

I would absolutely do a Visnovsky/Boyes for Shroeder & 3rd at the deadline!!

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Is this a joke? Emmanuel Lewis doesn't think Schroeder looks imposing.

He wasn't drafted to look scary, though.

funny, because hansen's goal was created by schroeder winning a board battle in his own zone. Hilarious because who drafts a 5'9 skilled forward to look imposing and not diminutive.

mixed feelings , i disagree with part of your assessment, although too small i actually think Jordan does a decent job of battling, he wins some battles but i tend to agree with you and think the future is 6"6 centres, not 5'6".

I think you may eat crow on this one.. He's really impressed me with the way he battles for pucks. His stocky frame allows him to squeeze through pinches on the boards without falling down. He's like Raymond but you can put your hands on him and he won't fall down. Real smart player too not caught out of position and determined to make minimal mistakes.

I see a really focused player right now, he looks determined to want to stay and do all the little things he needs to do to succeed at this level.

We have to see what we got with this kid too because we have nobody else in the system with his talent level. If we still had Cody I would be all over developing him for another year and trading him during his breakout.

People who label others as bandwagoners, people who tell other people "how" to cheer for their team, "how" they should act or what they should wear to "support" their team, people who only want to hear positive thoughts and don't want to read about how the team can do better - these are people who are insecure and uncomfortable within their own skin.

I'll support my team the way I choose, thank you very much. You can choose to support your team the way you want to, and I won't judge you on it as long as you don't try to force your beliefs on me. I'll also be quick to point out where I think the team can do better, because identifying that there is a problem is the first step to fixing it; denying or ignoring a problem won't solve anything.

Go Canucks Go.

He's improved every year in the AHL.
Now he gets a shot in the NHL and you're mad he's not scoring like a Sedin?
He's 22! Back off

O.P. uses big words to describe small player. Some small players have had very good careers, too soon to say how Jordan will do.

Yes, he looks diminutive and unimposing, so does Marty St. Louis. Schroeder is pretty strong on the puck for a small guy, just because he looks unintimidating doesn't mean he can't be a good player. Sure you don't want a whole team of short guys but small guys can help your team.

Imposing? He's barely 5.8.

Schroeder was throwing his body around last game, which I was really happy about. If he's going to play at the NHL level at that height and weight he should really develop some edge to his game. Although, it's nearly impossible to just "develop" an edge.

If Schroeder is going to stay in the NHL, he's going to have to be the next Martin St. Louis or Brian Gionta. Does he have the skills and mindset to stay in the NHL? Absolutely.

No, you're not the only one who thinks that.

Am I the only one who thinks less than 25 games in the league (in which he's shown some flashes of creativity and skill) is a little early to give up on yet another prospect? No, I'm not the only one who thinks that.

He's not really supposed to be imposing. I think Sestito has that covered.

For some reason I'm kind of expecting him to possibly develop into a Larionov type player. He's definitely a thinker. If you watch him play, he's always looking around and rarely tunnel visions. I can't recall a time I've seen him panic with the puck yet. He has a lot of poise and patience, especially considering his lack of experience.

I've also seen him win his share of puck battles on the boards, although he also has his moments of bouncing off guys who are set. Not to say he always makes the right choices positionally or doesn't screw up execution, but that's par for the course for anyone playing at the speed these guys are.
