If Schultz pulled this stunt on the Rangers,what would the reaction be? It wouldn't be Schultz has a right to change his mind.

It's crazy to think how much of our offseason relies on Schultz signing. We're either gonna have a quiet offseason or land Schultz and get some other big pieces.

McDonagh was vilified too when he didn't sign immediately

So I don't think we're getting him, who is playing on Staal's right?

Strahlman.

or

they either swap sides for Staal or Del Zotto earlier in the season.

or

they push McD down and switch his side. Move Staal back to #1 pair.

But if he doesn't want to play there why would he sign a contract and hope the team will move him? He would risk being stuck there, and then be in an uncomfortable position. I'm not saying I agree with his decision, but this way he doesn't have to worry about getting traded to a place he would prefer to play.

How are the two correlated? I don't see it.

More depth allows us to trade for someone, whoever it is. Less depth we likely stay with what we have.

A few things could happen

1) Like it or not teach DZ the Right Side in camp.
2) Trade DZ plus in a balzy deal for a LW and a 2nd pair RD. Erixon then 3rd pairing LD

That's my take anyway

No real good UFA Dmen out there on the RD. I think they sign Kubina for depth on the 3rd pair.

He's just talking to teams like every UFA does . Maybe its better he doesnt come to NY cause some will be way too hard on him. He's gonna get a max rookie contract which is no different than tons of others. Just look at this as a bonus first rounder pick

Free agent defenceman Justin Schultz will decide tomorrow where he's signing.

He needs to sleep on his decision. Its essentially the next 6 years of his life assuming the same free agent rules are in place.

A couple of people suggested the NHL might try something as simple as changing "age 27 or seven years" to "age 27 and seven years." Or it might try to raise it closer to 31 years old.
http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/opin...he-issues.html

Under the current CBA,Schultz becomes a group III after 6 years. He misses being a group III after 5 years. He was born 7/6. Turns 22. Arbitration eligible after two year ELC.

I still say Van is the favorite, they can give him everything we can and more minutes really. Their D is easier to crack. Plus its home. They make the most sense. We will be A- OK. Staal girardi mcdonagh del zotto, erixon will get a shot. Maybe sauer. Stralman's agent said he wants to stay in nhl if possible so we are ok either way. Also, I doubt we trade MDZ for scoring either way..

Josh Rimer has a podcast. Jake Gardiner was a guest just now. You can tell from his voice that he has no idea what Schultz is thinking. Schultz hasn't said anything to him.

As far as Leetch, that is absolutely insane. Kid isn't even same mold for the comparison.
I'd say he's got a better shot than Rafalski, but isn't quite as creative.

As for Leetch, I agree. Sadly, when you read certain reactions around the sport, there are people who are probably putting those kind of unrealistic expectations on this kid.

Schultz compares to less skilled Erik Karlsson? Fair?
