He wouldn't accept a trade for his rights. Same agency reps both players. Newport Sports.
Edmonton is light years away from being a very good team. Besides those 3 forwards,how many players does Edmonton have in place? Tambellini needs an entire new team but he doesn't even know the rules of the CBA. They need a #1 goaltender. Their D is terrible. The Hawks had Keith and Seabrook. Pitt had Letang,Orpik and Goligoski. Renney won't be back. Their AHL coach Todd Nelson is the rumored replacement. Disaster.
The Rangers are the perfect fit.
True, unlike Erixon, Schultz gets to pick where he goes...so it's unclear why a team would give up assets to get him. That said, If this kid has as much upside as some think, I'm fine moving a late pick to lock him up.
