I'm surprised they've never tried Smid with J. Schultz. Seems like a natural fit to me.

Smid-J. Schultz
Whitney-Petry
N. Schultz-Fistric

Although then I guess you run into the problem of wanting Smid out against other teams top lines and having J. Schultz with him.
I agree 100 percent. Smid would be perfect for Schultz, yet I think I've seen them paired together for maybe 3 shifts all year.

As for Schultz being out there against top competition, consider me a firm believer that the best defence is a good offence. You can't win 0-0, but you can win 7-6.
