1.) tall

I guess a few people keep hoping he'll turn into Chara. Of course, his level of play is much closer to that of Chara's wife.

When someone like Ole does more in two games than 55 has done, basically, ever, it's a problem. When solid AHL vets are out-playing you, and you make just under $3M, that makes you awful.
I'm far from a Schultz fan, but let's remember that he's 27, the same age as "most improved Bear this season" Oleksy. If the adage about defensemen maturing later is true, he could have some development left in him (though I personally don't think so).
