Imagine lifting the Cup over your head and becoming a hero to your hometown province for bringing the Cup to Vancouver. If winning the Cup is the ultimate satisfaction, winning the Cup for your hometown franchise that never has and being one of the keys to that win just makes winning all the more sweeter. No other franchise offers the opportunity for Schultz to become a franchise legend and hometown hero.
What would it say about the city if he choses to sign with another club.

IMO signing with your hometown is great. Cant understand why guys shy away from it. Lupul, JBo etc come to mind from EDM. Certainly another checkmark in favor of VAN
