I really think some of you need to see Schultz play a few games. He's a great defensive player and he'll look great as a #4 guy here. I like Gilbert but we need an offensive defenceman WITH him here so it's not like things have changed.

Realistically, Edmonton really needs a top pairing minute eater who can play in all situations. Moving Gilbert to acquire Schultz doesn't really change that and I think it actually balances out our defence better IF we can get that guy (possibly Ryan Murray long-term?).
