The final two months of the 11/12 season and the playoffs illustrated that fact. If you can't outplay your opponent 5 on 5 then you're going to lose, lose and lose some more.
In the meanwhile we need to draw more penalties to maximize our PP. A guy like Schultz will undoubtedly help our ES scoring at the next level. He's like a 4th forward out there and will take some defensive pressure off of guys like Hemsky and Gagner because Schultz always has to be accounted for by opposing defenses.
