Kind of silly though reading how many posters think he is already a top 4 dman at the NHL level. He will likely need next season just to get his feet under him. Having said that Schultz has great potential and they got him for nothing so thats a huge positive in and of itself.

Really its just nice to see the Oilers be the recipient of some positive UFA news for a change.

The team really needs to add a top 4 dman and then this defence should be able to compete next season.

One question about Schultz's status at the duration of his 2 year deal...UFA or RFA?
I believe it's RFA status....because of his age, they account for that and reduce his ELC by 1 year is all.
