Not crazy about this deal, but the Oilers do need a defensive guy and Schultz sounds like a good one when healthy. If Petry steps his game up and Schultz plays big ES minutes, it might make us a better bet for the second season next year. I just wish we could have done this WITHOUT giving up one of our only other top four defensemen. Kind of seems like running in place if we can't replace Gilbert's minutes.
