Here's my sales pitch if I'm Bryan Murray:

-young team on the rise
-offensive system: more points: higher second contract
-play with EK on PP = more points
-look how well we develop defensemen: EK, Cowen coming along too
-opportunity for big role: Kuba not resigned, if we sign you we won't replace Kuba with a vet

Here's how I'd knock down the other teams:

(tough to do, I think Schultz signs with them)
-team has peaked, in decline
-many vet defensemen in depth chart to pass

-a young top 4 already set, will be tough for Schultz to pass any of these guys
-defensive system = less points = lower 2nd contract

-team of the past, in decline
-big preference for playing vets over kids

-how many of the young guns will want out at first opportunity?
-organization a joke / shambles: last place 3 years in a row

-less points in Carlyle's defensive system = lower 2nd contract
-look at how they mis-developed Schenn compared to the Sens with Karlsson
-7 years no playoffs, spinning their wheels
