Anaheim made the mistake of trusting Schultz. Hagelin could have waited 4 months and been an UFA on August 15 but he had no intention of doing that.

The Rangers are expected to sign Michigan senior left wing Carl Hagelin once the Wolverines' season ends, a source with knowledge of the situation told The Post.

Should Hagelin, who was selected in the sixth round of the 2007 draft (168th overall), complete his season before the Blueshirts' AHL Connecticut affiliate is eliminated from the playoffs, the plan would be for the 5-foot-11, 176-pound Swede to join the Whale.

Hagelin would become eligible for unrestricted free agency this summer if he does not sign with the Rangers by Aug. 15, but that is not the Swedish native's intention.

Schultz told Bob Murray he was turning pro after the season but he didn't. The Ducks probably spoke to Schultz last summer when he decided to play in school for his junior year. It would give him the option of becoming a free agent after the season. Schultz screwed them.
