i disagree completely, schultz has looked a bit out of sorts this year at times but when he is on his game he is an amazing player. A bridge contract will probably come back to kick us in the hole when he puts up 60pts from the back end just like Montreal is getting hacked when subbans next contract comes up. Use this weak season to lure Schultz into a 6 year 4.5 mil deal and reap the benefits for 4/6 years on that deal. we have the cap space to make a gamble here. if we bridge him at 2.5 for 2 and he lights it up like he did in the ahl we are looking in the 7-8M range to resign him.

also if we can lock him into 4.5 for 6 and he becomes elite then the d cap is set for Nurse/Marincin etc as well.
