Ya I hear you but there's also just 5 lbs difference. Both may yet bulk up somewhat but I doubt either will be crushers on the blueline. 4 inches is a lot but much like the Twin towers... size isn't everything when there isn't a lot of weight behind it. Is Schultz a red hot guarantee to handle power forwards?

I honestly want to wait and see him play before I anoint him as the chosen one. I don't know enough about Laleggia or Schultz (basically have watched highlights of both and they look good to me)... which is why I was asking for details about the vast divide in their respective potentials.

It seems Schultz is a sure bet top 4 and Laleggia is a long, long shot to have an outside chance at an NHL spot.

My gut (which is often wrong) says they may be closer than that. Laleggia is younger as well... by a full 2 years. He could very well be heavier than Schultz in 2 year's time. I agree, the Oilers could have a steal with him as well.
