He gets some pretty high praise.


I found this part pretty interesting:
I absolutely loved this draft selection by the Oilers. That late in the draft, why not gamble on a guy who has elite skills in a number of areas? He obviously is really small but with some of the size on the blueline we have in the pipeline (Klefbom, Musil, Teubert etc.), we can potentially afford to have a smaller defenceman if he is at least decent in his own end.

Can you imagine having both Schultz and LaLeggia in the lineup if they develop to their full potential? That's two elite offensive defencemen who can quarterback the powerplay!
