Just fair warning, Schultz may be big, but he doesn't play that way. If you were imagining him as a crease clearer, you're going to be disappointed (actually, Orlov is much closer to that than Schultz is). He's also too slow to be at all effective in a man-to-man scheme, and can screw his partner over because he's too slow to get to puck retrievals on his side (this is probably why Green's been so beat up recently). The only assets to his game are his positioning and his reach. If you run a zone scheme, he can be effective defensively, but there still won't be any other positives.

Hartikainen seems to be challenging Jones for that 3rd line RW spot, could he be replaced? I know Oilers fans love Jones though so maybe not.
I'd definitely take that from the Caps end, though admittedly I know just about nothing about Ryan Jones.
