What annoyed me most about the Schultz play in the Canes game at VC was not that the Canes forward had out raced him to the puck in order to kill the icing, but rather Schultz's positioning on the play. He allowed the guy to get on the inside of 55 as well as closer to the Caps goal and then allowing him to get off a nice pass to a team mate. I think many of us could have accepted Schultz getting out skated to the puck by a smaller faster forward, but it was all the other things in that sequence of events that really highlighted Schultz's weaknesses as a defenseman, poor positioning/hockey IQ.
