I saw Hextall play but not in the 80s. I saw him during his second stint (I'm 23 years old). Schultz is a guy who epitomized Flyers hockey. He didn't have impressive numbers really outside of the PIMs, but he was a legend because of the way he played the game. Schultz is debatable just like any of these players are. And like I said about Howe, I wouldn't be opposed to them retiring his number, it's just that if I were running the show I'd retire Hextall and Schultz. Reasonable minds can differ on pretty much any of the players being talked about here.
