he had edmonton in his mind when he was picking teams, not the whole time he was in college... he was close to signing with vancouver but couldnt resist playing with young talent he can play with for years and had a lot of people from the oil convincing him of such.

Does Karlsson project to be Karlsson ever again? Karlsson might settle as a 70 point player. Not valid to say you can't compare because Shultz will not get 80 points.

Karlsson is a smooth/quick skater, hold the pucks and can skate from end to end, and shoots a ton. If Shultz has some of those attributes and projects to be 50+ scorer in the NHL, it's a valid to compare the two. Specifically, does Shultz pass the puck (like Redden) or also rush/carry (like Karlsson)?
schultz and karlsson will be racing each other for points imo both have quite similar tools and are such an offensive threat, add in the additional talent schultz gets to play with should ensure he is in that race.

he doesnt need to slap it he can walk in and get a very accurate shot off quickly or make a big pass. schultz is often pinching in to save plays that should of died and often makes a goal or good scoring chance out of what should of been nothing.

he is very good at creating a rush or coming out of nowhere to take a pass from eberle and fire it top shelf.

when the kid line in okc isnt getting in the zone well schultz gets it done and it always = a good scoring chance or goal out of his rushes

i have no doubt his offensive game will transfer into the nhl just the same

as for his defensive game will need to improve ofcourse but he is fairly good and his positioning is very solid, with his smarts he will improve his defensive game very fast

karlsson schultz point races for years to come
