I have to disagree. Schultz is already a puck moving PP guy, so Dumba would be a bit redundant. Murray offers solid-as-a-rock defense to pair with a more free roaming Schultz. And it isn't like Murray doesn't have offensive upside as well. I do accept that I could be a bit biased because I am leaning towards him though.

Schultz is actually available on June 1st though, the contract just doesn't go into effect until July 1st.

And the point was that guys that teams are about to lose to UFA don't tend to bring back big returns when they are NHL players, let alone unproven prospects. His trade price won't be as big as Erixon's.
