Also, to your second statement: none of those three forwards are going to be spending much, if any, time in the AHL. It's also incredibly unlikely that Toronto is going to get any of them. The team just isn't bad enough.
You can't really say that. Playing with those types of players makes the whole team better despite what it says on the stats sheet. It's about freeing up space on the ice, time on attack and about puck possession, not just points. Especially with both Eberle and RNH being high end NHL caliber players Schultz does have an advantage. That doesn't take anything away from his skill, but he just has more people to work with that are at his level.
