Im pretty sure it would be better for J. Schultz development if he isnt relied as much than the oilers have. He is a young guy, in his first nhl season and he is already the main offensive dman of the oilers. For a guy like him it would e better for his development if he got sheltered minutes similar to wiercoch, unfortunately for him the oilers dont have a guy like gonchar to mentor him or help him with his development.
You don't give Justin Schultz sheltered minutes, look at the calibre of hockey he plays. You give him minutes to help improve his game, he is on the path to elite.

34 games was enough for him to win the Eddie Shore Award. Justin Schultz is also first rookie in the 55-year history to win defenceman of the year.

You wonder why the OP was interested in Methot to Edmonton.
