The way he is playing.. Tambo wouldve save 3M\yr had he waited for Ebs to become a RFA.. The guy is playing very sad.. nice snipe in SO though..
Not going to get into Eberle, but Justin Schultz is what he is - a rookie defenseman struggling with even strength minutes in a top-4 role. If our GM was competent he'd have a steady partner in a bottom-6 role or a rock-solid shutdown partner (Smid) in a 2nd pairing role. He isn't, so Schultz is having the obvious struggles in his role.

He's never been an effective even-strength point producer or offensive kick-starter at the NHL level - most of his points seem to be coming on the PP.
