let's face it, our roster is warm butter soft, and while I agree with those who argue that several of our players play a "tough" game even without being physically imposing, at the end of the day we don't have anyone pencilled in right now who can physically handle the goons/tough guys most of our opponents will be all to eager to use against us (anyone notice mcgrattan getting a try-out with the "B's"... come playoff time, I'd love to see the B's dress that guy against us, but in mid-january, watching him or a player like him take liberties on our guys with only Moen or Lapierre to "step-in" is a little distressing.

Schultz is as tough as they come, and I've heard from a few different first-hand sources that he was downright feared during his last year in the dub... despite being a top 6 guy for the Hitmen, even the pure goons on the other squads were hesitant to tangle with him... that says a lot imo.

Hopefully, Martin and co. (and then Cunneyworth and co. in Hamilton) do a good of showing this kid that if he puts in the conditioning/skating work, he'll be able to have a successful career... and that Schultz has the desire and motivation to make it happen.
Yep that's what Martin said, skatinf and fitness is his big issues right now.

from what i've heard, he's defensively responsible and can already lay out men with big hits. If he takes a year or two to just focus on conditioning and skating, i can't see him not making the team eventually.

Then maybe have a spot on the team...
This is good, assuming that he doesn't overperform/underperform in the AHL.

He seems like he's going to be a Lucic type player, if he progresses the way he should. He has good blood so hopefully we've got a good guy to replace Moen in 2 years

Lucic is much bigger, and have better hands.

No he can't, but not because he's not capable of helping, but rather because Gauthier didn't leave any room for kids to make the team.

Yeah, and we'd be lucky to have a guy like Chris Neil. They're important to have on the team especially when they're young and they hit everything moving thing in site.

you know he's a young adult, he haven't played yet at pro level, where he learn to work on his fitness and how to eat. You know futur stars like Hall, Crosby, Staal already had their personal fitness trainer before coming in NHL... so you can't blame a guy for not being in shape, just look at Latendresse, he had to work hard to lose his fat when he made his first training camp with the Habs.

Not unless he progresses 2 years in 2 weeks.

He has 34 NHL goals in 199 games while playing at least half of those with a supreme passer like Savard, not sure where you get that Lucic has good hands.

In terms of size they are about the same, 6'2-3" and 215lbs.

There's a big difference between Schultz and Subban though...Subban is a potential #1 dman and needed to play big minutes in order to help his development. Having him play 10 minutes a night would not have been beneficial to him.

Schultz, on the other hand, is a potential 3/4th liner. If he can get 4th line minutes on the big club, it probably wouldn't hurt his potential. You are probably looking at 10-12 minutes a night in the AHL vs. 5-8 in the NHL. Not a huge difference.
