I think hes gonna surprise everyone and pick Ottawa. I wouldn't mind playing alongside a Norris Trophy winner that is the same age as me.

Why would you want him to fail? Because how much HF and tsn have covered him? Is that why you'd like a 22 year old kid of uni to fail at pro hockey?

No I think most Anaheim fans do.

Is he allowed to declare his intent before July 1? He can make his choice, but can he just tell everyone?

For me personally, I don't want him to fail, even if he signs with the Canucks.

I have more of an issue with him leaving the Ducks.

Once he's a UFA, he pretty much has no say, his agents are going to line up the teams and make the most of the opportunity.

I just want to know why he felt the need to leave the Ducks.

If he wants to be THE guy...he'll sign in Edmonton and provide them with a piece they haven't had in years and desperately need. If he wants a smooth transition...he'd be better off looking somewhere like Ottawa, but he'll never be THE guy there.
Senator fan, huh? Man, 11/12 sure gave you guys a collective fat head.

Not only is it probably that he makes his $212,500 A bonuses, it is more likely that he will make an extra $2,000,000 in B bonuses if he plays for the Oilers and not the Canucks. Although that could be a stretch for the first season, it becomes more achievable in the next 2 years of his contract.
That's a pretty big "What if".

From the sounds of things, this kid is gonna be in the NHL for a while.

How do the bonuses work? What must he do to qualify for them?

If that was the case, I would hate Sidney Crosby. I don't.

Schultz will get 100x more hate if he chooses the Leafs.

Except there's nothing wrong with taking your time and confirming to the teams the deadline you are operating on so that they can plan around it, it's onlly reasonable.

He's hardly grandstanding with this whole decision process like Lebron, we haven't heard much from Schultz at all.

Can't wait until this kid has to go up against the top NHL forwards and gets burned badly.

Schultz tomorrow: "In this fall... this is very tough... in this fall I'm going to take my talents to Kits Beach and join the Vancouver Canucks."

Justin Schultz hasn't been on TV once and hasn't made a specticle of himself at all. In fact GMMG stipulated that no communication with the media was something that Schultz team asked for and thus he wouldn't discuss the situation with the media.

James made a ****ing TV special about his decision after courting the media for weeks.

The only issue with Schultz is that there is no other hockey news to discuss so the media is really focused on him right now. As far I know, he's a quiet kid who is doing his proper due dilligence before picking a team (and hopefully its VAN).

I don't get it either. He's selfish because a lot of teams are interested in him and he's taking every opportunity available to him to make the decision that works best for him?

After his contract is up in 2 years, he is a UFA right?
