I don't think J. Schultz will bust, but I also don't think he's going to score 30 points in 48 games his rookie year and lead you guys to the promised land like some posters in this thread are suggesting. Crowning him a legitimate top-4 guy before he plays his first game is setting yourself up for disappointment.
After watching him play in the AHL, I don't think its unrealistic to expect him to be a 2nd pair d-man as a rookie.
