-below-average ES transition and defensive play. Fair because he was in a 2nd pairing role. Playing above where he should

Justin Schultz isn't a defenseman to lead a break-out, I hope I'm not the only one who's noticed this. His break-out ability is quite limited. Not a confident break-out skater like Kindl is in Detroit, nor a confident break-out passer like a young Poti was. That part of his game is yet to mature.
I think his first pass is just fine? After Whitney probably the best on the team. Really good skater for a defenceman, and thinks the game really well, he's weak though, gets handled on the boards pretty easily ill say that much.
