Because someone told him of the loophole in the current CBA that would allow him to become a UFA. So he decided at some point to be quiet and not tell Anaheim and wait out till he could withdraw from school.

Just my opinion but pretty classless lying to an organization, in which you express interest of playing in as soon as possible, so you can play with friends, be close to family etc. and not give the team that has been waiting for you a chance to actually get something in return.

So your saying if you were in Schultz shoes you'd rather go play for team who hasn't made the playoffs in 7 years, far away from your family just because your 'best friend' Plays there opposed to a team you grew up cheering for, where your family lives and you get to play for a team contending for the cup.

i didnt know playing 5 playoff games qualifies a team as being a contender.

Personal success, not team success. I would think seeing just how bad they have been for awhile would scare him away.

If the Kings proved anything, it's that simply even making the playoffs makes a team a contender.

I'm not quite sure who you think you're talking to, but that isn't Brian Burke or John Ferguson.


It always makes me laugh when fans think they're above others because of the team they cheer for. You, him, nor anyone else on here has had anything to do with their team success or how they were built...


Calling someone dumb because of moves the management of their favorite team made, only gives evidence to the contrary... But hey, do whatever you need to make you feel big!

I mean it's not like the team was win away from cup just last, and it's not like the team has won back2back President's trophies. Vancouver has won more playoff games the last two years than both the Leafs and Oilers combined since the lockout.

The Pens played the majority of the season without the best player in the game...if anyone should be using an injury excuse it's them.

If that were the case, I think he'd sign somewhere unexpected.

Canucks cups in last 2 years: 0
Oilers cups in last 2 years: 0

Fact.

That being said, while I hope he comes to Edmonton, I find it hard to believe he would pass up a Vancouver opportunity. I wouldn't.

He will make more money as a FA.

He also has the ability to choose to play for his team of liking.

Canucks playoffs in last 2 years: 2

You could've done
Canucks cups in franchise: 0
Oilers cups in franchise: Too many

I can't hear you. I have both of my President Trophies blocking my ears!
Darn, that just doesn't work as well when you take out the 'Stanley Cup rings' reference.

Thats what agents are for, though... To help them weigh their options and present all the factors to ensure their client makes the best decision for themself as not only a player, but a person.

Whatever team he chooses will own his rights until he's 27. Although its only a 2 year deal, its a longer commitment not withstanding a trade.

all this talk about who did what...
Oh you never won a cup
Oh you havnt made the playoffs since the lockout.

bla bla bla

No one gives a **** about the past.
It's about next season.....and right now...the canucks look pretty darn good....the flames will struggles to make 7th/8th in the west. The oilers will most likely miss the playoffs by quite a bit (no goalie, no D...and a very young group of forwards).
TML will struggle to make 8th.....they will struggle more so than Cgy unless they get a goalie. Luongo will help them get in the playoffs.
Vancouver is obviously the strongest team going into nxt season (of Schultz alleged favorites).
You guys bicker about things in the past like they have any bearing on the future. They dont.

Nobody said anything about being "above" someone else, and I wasn't the one calling someone else dumb. Looks like reading comprehension really isn't your strong point, though.

Flames GM Feaster said team approached Justin Schultz's agent to make a pitch but hasn't heard back. Looks like no interest in Calgary

He actually would have made more money signing immediately after college and turning pro and burning a year off his ELC.
