Look at Schultz. (Justin, not the idol for Klefbom that is our veritable top 4 d-man Nick). Justin is now officially struggling. He has hit -17 in +/- and is getting murdered in the post game E. Journal analysis. I am a huge, massive, gigantic Justin fan. However, the kid has hit the wall.

So, if Justin hits the wall, despite: a) being healthy and not coming off significant surgery, and b) destroying the AHL, exactly what chance does Klefbom have?
Different situation. In the AHL I believe Schutlz was playing 29 minutes a game. That was a huge mistake on the Oilers part, because he's played double the games this year he did in college.

If you remember, J Schultz was great when he started the year here. Fatigue from the year has worn him out, hence why he's not as sharp.

That said, I hope to god the Oil start in in the AHL.
