I wish there was a way to tell for sure. Looking at the box score for a random game doesn't really tell me anything solid.

M. Zidlicky D 0 0 0 0 2 4 17:05 2:49 0:00 19:54
B. Burns D 1 0 1 -2 0 5 18:10 2:17 2:45 23:12
K. Johnsson D 0 0 0 -1 0 2 17:45 2:08 0:59 20:52
M. Skoula D 0 0 0 0 0 1 17:56 0:12 1:15 19:23
M. Bergeron D 0 0 0 0 2 0 13:10 2:31 0:16 15:57
N. Schultz D 0 0 0 -1 0 0 18:34 0:00 2:45 21:19

I could be confusing 5 v 5 time versus short handed. Burns/Schultz had the same (or very close) short handed ice time in the random 08 box scores I looked through.

/shrug

I think the reason why Schultz is more trade bait than Burns (not that I agree with it) is that we have to look at what the Wild have versus what other teams need.

There are more than 10 plus teams that need a player like Schultz that can easily absorb and be happy with, his contract.

Unfortunately, there are also a lot of free agents that can fill that role, but they are going to be more expensive. Combine that with the amount of defensemen that will be "on the move" it really becomes more like the goalie situation and our pipe dreams of moving Harding.

Hnidy was hidden behind Schultz last year. That's hiding someone.
Hnidy was paired with Johnsson a lot before the trade and then Schultz. So yes, that is how you hide someone.

Frankly, even wanting to trade Schultz with the D we have inked makes me shudder. Porous much? (Stupid Zidlicky extension and raise...)
