The more I think about it the more I like the idea of a long term signing.

We've already gambled on 3 players and honestly I think Eberle is the only one who might not be worth the money by the end of their terms.

Shultz's value is very low right now and his potential is still very far up there. I think you can lock him up long term for considerably less than the wonder kids and have him part of the "plan' for what is hopefully a deep play off run in 5 yearsish.

I no longer believe the Oilers are even remotely close to making the playoffs and we all know getting a FA top 4 D-man here in Edmonton is next to impossible.

May as well stick to the plan and gamble that he is a key component.

Not like we can replace what he bring to our team anyways.
