Well this isn't a good team yet so it doesn't much matter what they'd do on a good team. In a year or two they'd be top 4 on a good team, hell they may be that good to fill that role right now on a good team.

In my mind you make a team to have the depth to go 100 games in about 8 months. That means having the right guys for the right roles. The best teams have the proper guys getting proper ice time. the oilers have injiry problems because we have half a team that we try to have do too many things.

J Schultz focus on PP and 5 on 5. get pk men to do the pk.

Lets stop thinking like a bottom 10 team where we take one of the only good dmen and work him into early injury issues which will destroy his career. we should have ability to form a complete enough team to actually play like a hockey team with specific players for specific roles.

its the difference between a real team and a joke.
I fail to see how playing on the PK will "destroy his career due to injuries", but I'm more than fine with your idea of having him play almost exclusively at ES and on the PP where he can best utilize his offensive abilities.
