I am not comparing them as players as I've hardly seen Schultz play. I am comparing the hype though. Gilroy was smooth skating offensive defnsemen who was going to solve our PP QB problems. Free agent we had to have.
I read an article yesterday (I think it was on ProHockey Talk) speculating that several teams will guarantee Schultz roster spot and if you are not willing to do that, you likely won't be in the conversation.
I'd agree that the hype here was comparable with Gilroy to what we are now seeing with Schultz. Key difference for me is that some posters I respect are so high on Schultz this time around.
If in fact the guy wants a guaranteed spot, and our failure to commit to that takes us out of the discussion, then so be it.
I'm not worried about it. If he is talking with his former team mates, then he knows the deal.
