Based on what I've read, Schultz has a higher ceiling of potential than Gardiner but it's hard to ignore that Gardiner has done something that Schultz has yet to do - he's translated his game to the NHL level and has been impressive while doing so. I do think Schultz will translate his game just as successfully as Gardiner was able to do, but for now I don't think it's fair to rate a guy who hasn't played a single NHL game above a guy who's already played a full season and done really well.

Not to mention, Gardiner has played a lot of hockey since being traded to Toronto. When I see him in games, it often looks like things are too easy for him and this is a guy that basically played a full NHL schedule, plus a long, intense playoff schedule in the AHL and has come back after a very short off season. It would have been nice to have Schultz but I'm just as happy to have Gardiner.
