Perhaps he could be a 4th liner some day if he can improve his skating/mobility by a good bit. I know he will drop the gloves but not sure that's something he'll be very good at.
You find that Schultz has better hands than Berger? I totally don't agree. Regardless of what their respective points totals were last year, I see significantly more puck skills in Berger. As such, the only way I'd try to develop a Schultz over a Berger is if my team had a serious inferiority/toughness complex, and had enough talent that a plug like Schultz could find a role in there somewhere.
