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.
Last time we did that, we locked up Gilbert long term at an overpayment of what he eventually became. And Nurse and Marincin won't go for 4.5 million if they turn out elite as well, so I don't get that point at all.
