Justin Schultz
 
Didn't see a recent thread on Justin Schultz, just thought I'd say a few things.

Currently playing in his 3rd game with the Oilers' AHL affiliate, the OKC Barons. He has 4 points in 3 games (with a period to go in the 3rd games)

I honestly thought he would not live up to his hype, but boy was I wrong. Yeah, its only been 3 games, but this guy skates like the wind, has offensive hockey IQ through the roof, and is surprisingly good defensively.

I didn't expect much from him after he signed with the Oilers, but I'm pretty stoked now! :yo:

Schultz has looked absolutely fantastic so far. Hopefully he keeps it up, and transitions into the NHL beautifully.

Lol
Back then:
Ducks fans: Justin Schultz is gonna be amazing
Everyone else: Meh

Now:
Everyone else: ZOMG J.SCHULTZ IS AMAZING!
Ducks fans: **** that guy...and we told you, didn't we?

Believe me, we are.:laugh:

At least we don't have to defend him anymore when people say that the only reason why people think he's great is that he went to free agency.

Soundwave 10-19-2012 09:17 PM

Sounds like he's ripping it up.

What he did was questionable (thankful since hes on the Oilers)

But I do think its major irony that Pronger signed a 5 year deal with us and was set to be our franchise D-men, then shockingly demanded a trade (greasy move) and landed with the Ducks only to help them win a cup that year.

Then a promising prospects from the ducks ditches and lands... with the Oilers

But Schultz has looked lights out in the AHL, living up to the hype

We'll gladly take on that burden.

No because you got essentially 4 first round picks for Pronger
We got nothing because he lied to our organization

Howboutthempanthers 10-19-2012 09:24 PM

Not surprised. I was sold on him the first time I saw him play.

Kesler2Kesler 10-19-2012 09:24 PM

Did he just get his 2nd goal of the night?

edit: Ah, Empty Net Goal, 2g 1a. Not bad at all.

Soundwave 10-19-2012 09:26 PM

2g (both SHG)
1a
+5

For the night.

Not bad at all.

Soli 10-19-2012 09:27 PM

2 Shorthanded Goals tonight. Albeit, one into an open net that he scored from his own blueline.

Both his goals were Shorthanded as well

Now 5 Points (3G, 2A) in 3 games. His assists were beauty passes. Yeah, I agree Anaheim got screwed by a loophole in the CBA, but I'm not going to complain :D

actually no

Back then everyone Schultz looks amazing
Now as an oiler "He sucks"

Kesler2Kesler 10-19-2012 09:31 PM

Damn, did not realize that they were SHGs, nice!

Not even remotely the same. There is no denying Schultz talents. There is also no denying he is still a ******!

CupofOil 10-19-2012 09:32 PM

I kind of figured that he would be really good after watching his college games this offseason on replay after he signed with the Oilers but man, he is playing up to the hype and then some.
It's only 3 games but he is blowing me away with his play right now not only offensively but also defensively. PP, PK and even strength. Sky is the limit for this kid.

Luuuongo 10-19-2012 09:37 PM

Still rooting for him even though he didn't pick the Nucks.

Vinegar Strokes 10-19-2012 09:38 PM

Schultz is a helluva player, and he's going to be a damn fine NHLer. I'm just glad we have Vatanen to alleviate the pain.

SDig14 10-19-2012 09:39 PM

Sadly, kids leave organizations all the time and it happens to nearly every organization every once in a while.

The unfortunate part for the Ducks was it came at a time after they traded Jake Gardiner and it was a more high profile prospect instead of the normal average type prospect leaving.

Fortunately for them they have a stud in Fowler still, a guy like Vatanen, and a couple other young roster guys to fill the void.

worraps 10-19-2012 09:45 PM

Schultz was the best player on the ice tonight with Nugent-Hopkins and Eberle playing to last season's standard.

I am starting to buy the hype.

s7ark 10-19-2012 09:49 PM

I feel for Duck fans about losing out on him, and if I were one I'd hate him too. It sucks when a player walks away from your team.

But as an Oiler fan, I am very excited about this kid. 2g(SH) 1a, +5 and 1st star. Hell of a night.
