Like someone said about Del Zotto's tools being rare in a 21 year old. Schultz's mix of tools and smarts is more rare.
Schultz is 100% NHL ready as far as his game and his brain are concerned. His strength is the only question. And i don't think its much of a question because of how he plays.
Schultz would give us a big boost of puck possession, and transition.
You don't worry about the max he can be given when considering a player like this.
He will most likely get "AHL" seasoning before the NHL season starts anyway because of a lockout. I say "AHL" because during the lockout it will really be a haven for NHL players.
I am all for getting Schultz since he won't cost any assets.
I'd be hesitant to annoint him as anything though.
The words above and what others have said about him sound errily similar to what was said about Matt Gilroy.
Even during his first training camp here people were comparing him to Zubov and Leetch.
If DZ is the chip needed to land a player we need so be it, but I'd be much more comfortable going into next season knowing he is here.
