Wheeler's just one example.
Look at Gilroy and the decision he made. Multiple suitors, top-heavy d-man prospects. Stayed local.
Granted, what kid wouldnt want to be a young millionaire in Manhattan? I think Schultz is nuts if he turns down the chance to play for an organization like the Rangers.
But we really dont know what kind of kid he is. Eaves says he's "quiet". So was Kevin macreynolds and look how that fiasco turned out.
By no means is Vancouver a place like East Smallville, MT. Hockey players there get treated like Jeter does here.
Like I said, both Vancouver and New York City are enticing. I just think Vancouver makes more sense because he has less guys to leapfrog on the depth chart. Salo and Ballard are done. It's really only Bieksa, Edler and Hamhuis.
On the Rangers, it's Staal, Girardi, MDZ, Macdonagh and maybe Sauer. Those guys cant run a PP like Schultz, but no way he'll be a top-4 here anytime soon.
