Not only that, but EVEN IF we assume that Schultz will be a top 4 dman right away (a foolish assumption, as we saw with the Erixon situation last year), I think a big part of our sales pitch will be the fact that he would be playing with either Staal or McDonagh (that 2nd pair RD spot is up for grabs as MDZ doesn't play the off-side very well and Sauer still looks a ways away). Imagine being a young PMD looking to establish yourself in the league. Can you imagine how comforting it would be to know that you would be playing with one of the best shut-down d-men as your partner (regardless of which of Staal/McD he got)?
