I agree that it's a bit of a perfect storm for Schultz but his last 2 seasons in the NCAA and his skill set make for a compelling argument that he is the best offensive Dman in this grouping...right now.

For those that say that he hasn't played in the NHL, neither has Nathan or Seth Jones but can't we see talent and production for what it is regardless of level sometimes?
