Justin Schultz signs with Oilers

No idea if the Wings would be a potential suitor but we can definitely use NHL ready d-men.

There are plenty of teams that can give him a full time roster spot. How would the Wings fit him in their plans? I'd love to strengthen our defensive prospect pool, but I don't think they can offer him what he wants. He's also inexperienced and throwing in a rookie with absolutely no NHL experience full-time isn't the Red Wings way of operating. If he's ok with starting the season in GR and working himself into the team, then by all means, go get him Kenny.

I can't help to think that he and Dekeyser could potentially be a Suter-Weber pairing

One hockey commentator compared him to Drew Doughty.

We'll never get him, unfortunately.

Nick won't be coming back to fill a position while we wait to build for the future. With no big committment by management for next year he has no reason to return.

It's kind of funny that during a point in time when we have a definite need for defenseman and plenty of money to throw around that people are of the opinion that we cannot make a strong move to sign a guy who many consider to be a d-man who wil play at a very high level. No, we've got to keep Kyle Quincey and we can't possibly give up on Jakub Kindl at this point. Lidstrom may not be coming back but hey it's all good, no need for a guy who projects to be a top 2 defenseman and costs you nothing more than an NHL contract.

Sign Schultz and say Peace Out to Quincey and Kindl. Red Wings depth on defense:

Suter (if we can sign him)
Kronwall
Smith
Schultz (if we can sign him)
Ericsson
White
Ouellet
Sproul
Jensen
Backman
Dekeyser (if we can sign him)
Almqvist
Lashoff

That is just an insane amount of talent and depth. Only the bottom two guys are Kindl type guys where you don't know if they'll make it to the NHL.

I think the wings do actually have an outside shot at getting him believe it or not I would have them around probably 5th in likelihood of signing him.

Maybe old team mate Brendan Smith could convince him?

Getting Smith and Schultz and then Dekeyser next year would have the future looking so bright. Hell trade Kindl to the ducks just for his negotiating rights for all I care.

Imagine signing 27 year old Suter, and then having Smith Schultz and Dekeyser all waiting in the wings. Rebuild complete.

Thirty teams will be after him. We have better odds of landing Suter or Parise.

disagree, because those two players have to first actually make it to free agency which at best is not likely and at worst not gonna happen and then detroit will be competing with the big boys of free agency all equally as likely to be a top destination coupled with their proven desire to spend money to get what they want(even though it sometimes fails misserably)

Maybe Schultz goes to Montreal, because his former teammate Blake Geoffrion plays there.
Maybe Schultz goes to NY Rangers, because his former teammates Derek Stepan and Ryan McDonagh are playing there.
Maybe Schultz goes to Nashville, because his former teammate Craig Smith plays there.
Maybe Schultz goes to Toronto, because his former teammate Jake Gardiner plays there.
Or maybe He comes to Detroit, because his former teammate Brendan Smith plays here.

Or maybe he goes somewhere without a former teammate.

I'm pretty sure there are Justin Schultz threads on all thirty team boards right now. I can't even get excited over this because, no matter what people say, he's a prospect.

We literally don't have room
We already have
1. Kronwall
2. White
3. Quincey
4. Ericsson
5. Smith
6. Quincey

We're going to sign Lidstrom likely. Whether he retires or not, there's a chance we make a play for Suter. Now we're up to 8. Oh, and we still haven't really even replaced Stuart yet with a defenseman who can play with some toughness,

Yeah, he's going to sign with the Wings so he can play in the AHL instead of a NHL spot with another team.

Exactly. I can understand when a guy like Fabrian Brunnstrom decides to sign with the Stars so he can play in the NHL right away rather than spend a couple years in Grand Rapids. We are an organization that spends money, is always in playoff contention and has 50/50 odds of a long playoff run, his coach at Wisconsin is Patrick Eaves' father, he may be friends with Brendan Smith, and have a definite paucity of top 2/4 defensemen but no, there's no way Schultz would ever consider playing in Detroit.

This is the offseason on a hockey message board. Kudos to you, internet message board poster who can't even entertain the idea of acquiring an NHL ready guy for nothing other than an NHL contract. Please hit up cap geek and give us all your different lineups with only the guys we currently have on the roster because thoughts of acquiring any UFAs is just far too risky a concept to enterain.

If I would be Justin Schultz, I'd sign with New York Rangers. What defence they would have in the future:

Girardi - Staal
McDonagh - Schultz
DelZotto - Erixon

He would still be there a 1st PP defenceman with Del Zotto. Right-Left pairing. Perfect.

I think Mackenzie said that Schultz wants a lot of minutes and #1 pp time.

If he's a righty he can have plenty of PP time here.

Exactly. White's a good fit but his play fell off pretty badly later in the season. Move him down to the 3-6 spot and the 2nd PP unit and he's a much better fit. Now I'm not saying we're guaranteed to get Schultz, I'm just saying we should be able to make a competitive offer in every meaningful way possible: money, playing time, organization, etc.

Best chance to play and develop, but I hope he goes to a team that can develop him for his careers sake.

Sometimes a player isn't ready and it needs time in the minors.

I wouldn't mind Smith-Schultz, Ouellet-Sproul defence in the future.
