Schultz was ranked best prospect in the world according to Craig Button.
Let's keep it relative though; Kadri playing with Leo Komarov and a revolving door, Schultz with RNH, Eberle and Hall..


I'm not gonna compare the two, but keep it in perspective...

Schultz has been as advertised; and offensive defenseman with some work to do on the defensive side, and Kadri has finally started to look like the player the Leafs drafted 7th overall... Aside from the point production, he's been good without the puck and that was his problem..

Both teams are happy with their guy, no need to make a deal .... Toronto and Edmonton are bad trade partners..

Oh, and don't tell people you get your information from Craig Button.
