The Rangers have depth on D but signing Schultz allows them to include a D in a trade for forward. Probably Del Zotto. Another Newport client. They may want DZ to get some ice-time on another team instead of playing behind McDonagh and Staal. Schultz is a righty. DZ is lefty. Gorton told Jim Cerny "you can never have enough defensemen" after the Sjkei selection. Gorton said some teams spend big money for 6th or 7th D. The Rangers don't want to be in that position of paying big dollars for veteran free agent D. That's why they draft them and acquire them while they are young. McDonagh and Erixon were acquired in trades.
