That's my exact point. If they get Schultz, and he is the real deal, the rest of their defense isn't that bad and they'll presumably add a couple more pieces. Even if their goalies still suck, I think they would be a playoff team. Great goaltending is not a pre-requisite to making the playoffs. Certainly doesn't hurt, but if these guys are scoring gobs of goals and their defense is half-way decent, watch out.
