I don't see how playing behind Chara makes Ference any worse. It's not like he was his defence partner. I also think Schultz can handle second pairing minutes but is the only defenceman we have that's capable of producing offense. Thus, the coach wants him out as much as possible to feed his top 6 forwards. I think Ference-Schultz is good enough for a second pair on any NHL team. The problem is that Smid-Petry is also a second pairing.
