Is shultz apart of the future or just for his contract to run out. He is only 29 which would mean he will still be a good player for a number of years. I do not feel like going through 1000 posts so what are we looking to expect in the future?
On the other end of that, if Whitney stays healthy... How many PMD do we need?
Even with Whitney in an ideal world the Oilers add another top 4 d-man. I know we are all big on Petry, but there isn't anything wrong with having him on the bottom pairing next year. Probably would be good for his development. And if he takes a big step and plays lights out, than there is nothing wrong with having Whitney/other top 4 d-man on the back end.
