Green is an elite offensive talent. IMO, Green-Hannan makes Green a different player and boosts the team O. But Coach Boudreau doesn't see it.
Schultz isn't terrible, really. But let's face it he's a soft, bottom pairing man, he has good reach and a decent pass. But he's so easy to play against that replacing Schultz might make the team a lot better. Having him with Green is buffoonery.
Wideman ________ (someone mean)
Ottawa prospect Jared Cowen would be the ideal replacement for Schultz. Similar in size to Schultz and has the long reach like Schultz, even had a bout with mono to delay his development like Schultz. The difference is that the 6'5" Cowen plays with grit and is deemed a physical shut down defenseman that clears the crease.
