It's ridiculous to number the defensemen. Schultz is a great PK defenseman and very solid 5 on 5, but he doesn't start a lot of offense. The dip in his minutes might have a lot to do with the fact that we played from behind all season long.
Schultz can match up very well against a team's top scorer. His contract isn't ideal, but it's not outrageous either. The problem is that we have Zanon for less money, so that makes Schultz redundant.
Cam Barker is not a fringe NHLer. He lost confidence last year after his PT took a big hit. If he's able to regain some of that swagger, we stole a top pairing defenseman.
We shouldn't trade Burns. The more I've thought about this, the more I'm against it. He's a fan favorite, and we're getting rid of Boogaard. He's got the most potential of any player on our roster, so a move could really bite us in the behind.
