I also find it interesting everyone pencils in gardiner and schultz to top 4 roles and liles/franson on the bottom pairing. I see it the other way around personally. Especially if liles can get back to where he was before the injury.
Which is why I like the way this guys is thinking, and I agree, this does look like a position opening up move . . . and hopefully, a huge upgrade coming.
And, considering the high possibility of either Franson, Gunnarsson or Komisarek leaving via trade to acquire either Luongo or another asset . . . I think it's quite likely that the Leafs gun hard for Shultz.
