The more I think about it, Schultz could be Detroits plan 1 to replace Stuart. He could play a solid 18 minutes a night and be used on the first PP as the right handed shot. Hes probably better than White in that regard and frankly if they are even close Detroit should just use him in order to entice him to come here.

What Dmen on the market could make more sense as a guy to play number 4/5 minutes but could also take over some PP time?
Yeah I've been pushing for the following:

Kronwall-Suter
Smith-Schultz
Ericsson-White

I think that would be an awesome set of d-men, we'd have our core set for the next 4-5 years while Ouellet, Backman, Sproul and Jensen finish their development. And I'm an Ericsson fan, he could PK a ton and White might do better with softer matchups on the third pairing at ES and he can pitch in on the PP if someone gets injured.
