Hey guys, Flames poster here. This situation is almost identical to what happened to us with the Tim Erixon. Everyone in Calgary was super PO'd as well, and you guys have every right to be.
But I really think you guys are selling yourselves way short of what his rights would return. A day or 2 before the deadline we had to sign Erixon last season, we sent his rights and a 5th round pick to the Rangers in return for Roman Horak (who was on our club this year), and 2 x 2nd round picks that ended up being Markus Granlund and Tyler Wotherspoon. I think we actually came out ahead on the deal. I think Schultz has more value than Erixon had, so if Murray can trade his rights hopefully they use that deal as a standard for a return that you guys get.
Assuming we could get him to agree to sign with the Flames, I would definitely offer a way better return than a 6th round pick. I would offer you guys a good young roster player and a draft pick, of course that would be dependent on the fact he agrees to sign with us.
I am sorry to hear this happened, I know how incredibly s***y it feels. You are so excited about a bluechip prospect and then he totally screws you. Just hope that Murray is competent enough to recoup some assets!
