Really curious why Schultz didn't want to play in what SHOULD be an up and coming team in the Ducks. Maybe Boudreau?
I don't really see Anaheim as an up and coming team. They have a few kids who might come up to the NHL roster next season that were working in the AHL, but they'll be filling in for Koivu and Selanne, not really advancing the roster. Fowler will probably get better and advance his game, but I am not sure where the huge step forward would come from? They are not a playoff team right now and I don't think Justin Schultz gets them there. Also, goaltending is a problem and Boudreau's system does not allow for pinching defenseman. Mike Green was neutered except on the PP.
