Confidence is all about the expectations placed upon you.
I dont think its that easy. I think he'd end up being a major liability defensively, something that Engqvist and Palushaj are not.

Shultz just doesn't think the game fast enough, yet... He wont be able to follow the play at the speed of NHL hockey. He'll be out of position and burned all night.

I'm not saying he'll never get there, just that he's still got a lot of work to do.
