This isn't the clutch and grab NHL anymore, Defending is done by positioning, speed and puck movement. Look at Vancouver's defense, Show me a defensemen there who is slow and can't make at very least a decent first pass? Alberts may be the only one.

You're making a big fuss out of something any plug with a body temperature of 98 degrees can do and looking right over some of the glaring problems he has.
A consistent minus player eh? Kinda like every single Leaf defensemen last year. Besides that he's been a minus player for two other years and one was when he was an 18 year old. The other two seasons he was a plus player. He also scored more points than Gunnarsson and only 8 points less than Gardiner while playing 5 minutes a game less than both of them. He also scored more points than Holzer in the AHL. Everyone is desperately trying to sign Schultz when him and schenn are the same age!! If Schenn was a UFA right now everyone would be after him. He was signed for 5 years last year for a reason and everyone was happy about it. Let's give him one more season under Carlyle before we make a big mistake and ship him out for nothing.
