I think it's pretty straightforward and backed up by what we've seen on the ice: Nick Schultz isn't a guy who pushes the play with the puck and he isn't good at retrieving the puck when he doesn't have it, meaning he's in a position where he's chasing guys or having to block shots (it's not a PK thing either since he's third in SH TOI). Perhaps that's to be expected as a "stay at home defenceman" but I have a personal preference for guys who play a possession game, guys who might cough up the puck, but whom can at least be expected to have it on their stick at some point and for more than a dinky chip off the glass.
