Yes, I am comparing them. They are both young defensemen, are they not? Is the SEL not a professional league? It's the same reason Brodin will likely have his ups and downs. The same reason Pietrangelo has had ups and downs.

Yes, because this organization has not been within playoffs distance for a long time.

Our defensive is going to be a bit worse off than the one we had coming into this season.

Great, we can move the puck. But can we actually defend?
If you think the lack of Schultz's defense is what is going to stand in our way from making the playoffs, I'm not sure how to respond. We are BUILDING a team, it takes time and can come from many different avenues.
