What we are missing is a guy like Johnsson. We just simply can't find a guy that can make a good outlet pass (not really offense but it helps) but also plays a steady, reliable game on the backend. Which Brodin should provide.
Maybe you haven't seen Gilbert play? That is exactly what he does...good outlet pass..slightly above average defender...still a little raw it seems though

But what is Schultz?? Below average defensive defenseman making 4 million a year with 0 offense. 3 points and a -10 and supposed to be this defensive dynamo..sure he was well liked in the lockeroom but that doesn't all of a sudden make him this primetime D-man...

Schultz wouldn't make the top 4 of a single good NHL team. No chance.
