No qualifying offer from VAN for Jordan Schroeder, cut loose to UFAdom. Ouch!

Not unexpected. There are dwindling roster spots, and his injury at the beginning of last season kept him mostly out of the line up, and it just killed his chances. I’ve watched this kid since mites, and his mobility is unreal. But he loses physical battles and just isn’t one of those guys with an agitator mentality. He has plenty of skill but that isn’t enough at this level. He’s not pretty enough to be Patrick Kane and needs to add some grit to his game.

He’s made damn good money for a 23 year old kid, and his career – wherever it leads him – will allow him to earn plenty more.
