It's pretty easy to be steadfast in an opinion of wanting Schultz gone when you see what he provides game in, game out for much of his career.
The problem I have is that Schultz is the scapegoat for a defense that has been terrible all year long. Outside of Spurgeon there has been not one D who has been consistently solid, and Schultz has been paired with the worst of the worst all year. Zanon, Zidlicky, Lundin, and yet every mistake or goal that has happened is his fault. I guarentee you if Schultz was paired with an actual top 4 caliber D you wouldn't be talking about him like he's Martin Skoula.
