I'm not advocating the deal but wouldn't you want a guy like Schultz to learn more about the PP before throwing him on the 1st unit. Expectations for Schultz as a rookie seem to be astronomically high. He's likely to be up and down his first year and Wiz - with his faults - is a very good guy to learn from and would be a great PP1 guy in Edmonton with that young talent.

Nothing says Schultz wouldn't ultimately man the top unit even with Wiz there. They could both be used on the top unit eventually.

As for the suggestion, Columbus is looking for skill up front at this point. While I'd love another 2013 1st, we need an influx of offensive skill to go with the grit and two way play already on the roster. I could see something around MPS to Columbus but don't dare offer a trade for fear of ridicule.
