imagine if this was kid kreider ditching us. we'd all want blood. they have every right to be pissed off... i don't think kreider testing the market was out of the question if we were fighting for 8th again this year. it's something extremely disrespectful to the organization (eric lindros).

schultz isn't a gretzky/lindros caliber guy. it's really something that the CBA has to fix because now anaheim - who did a great job drafting is out a big piece going forward. hell, schultz was the 43rd pick... certainly no eric lindros.

that said. it's the right decision on his end. if i had a choice to play anywhere in the league not only because of a loophole, but because i played hard enough for everywhere in the league to want me then i'd take it no questions asked. i'd feel bad for the team i left-- probably would've handled it better with the management and asked for a trade, but he has an opportunity to go on a top 3 team in the league and have a greatly elevated chance at winning the cup right this year and live anywhere that you want in the country while doing it.

Well it's not exactly the same thing if Kreider did the same, since we'd receive a 49th pick in compensation. With Shultz, since he wasn't drafted in the first round, they get nothing.

Leetch had defensive issues early in his career--somewhat like Karlsson. These issues came back towards the end of his career--it did not help though that the all star teams Smith and Sather surrounded him with pre-lockout were dysfunctional almost from top to bottom and that a country club 'who cares' attitude pervaded throughout the locker room. I wouldn't put the onus of either problem or Leetch or Richter who were always professional. They still had to deal with it though.

If there is any d-man in the league that is comparable to a younger Leetch--it's Karlsson. Considering the tighter checking of today's game to when Leetch played I think the numbers Karlsson put up last year was staggering.

Not as many people did it then but... there were plenty on the main boards who did not give us a shot with Richards either out of sheer jealously. This of coursing despite the fact that it was widely known we were on his very, very short list.

Let's assume that really is Bobby Ryan's tweet. As much as I wholeheartedly agree with him re: Schultz, he of all people, should not be tweeting right now about loyalty to a team.

Wasn't he JUST pouting and asking off the Ducks because his name had surfaced in trade rumors? Not in love with his level of mental maturity. Two weeks in a row now, he says things publicly that make him sound like a jilted lover. I'm not exactly dying to deal with this kid if he becomes a Ranger and Torts inevitably benches him for a period or a game. We're not going to like his reaction...

This is Don Brennan is such a dingleberry.

The New York Rangers brought along coach John Tortorella and blueliner Ryan McDonagh for their presentation to Schultz, we are told. Not bad. Schultz skated with McDonagh at the University of Wisconsin. They must be buds. But if Tortorella’s mood was anything like it was when he addressed the media after playoff games this past spring, that’s a wash. In fact, Schultz probably scratched New York off his shortlist immediately after the get-together.

Presume the Leafs had former Badger Jake Gardiner in tow for their sit-down with Schultz. But really, who’s he? Another friend? Big deal. Everybody’s his pal these days.

He is still mad at Torts for blowing off the media in the Ottawa series.

Texas Rangers? Schultz pitched for the Texas Rangers and heard the New York Rangers pitch on the same day?

I had an argument in March about Schultz becoming a Ranger on the main board. There was no way Schultz wouldn't sign with the Ducks and wouldn't be a Ranger if became a free agent.

Remember that scene in the Town when they take down the armored truck.

There's no deadline for Schultz. He can agree to terms today but can't sign the SPC until noon tomorrow. Schultz is expected to make his choice today. The reported timeline was late Friday afternoon to Saturday. It gives the other teams a chance to make other plans if Schultz picks a different team. He has had plenty of time to make up his mind.

Ryan needs to hush.

He might end up being teammates with him.

Don Brennan is our version of Larry Brooks. Actually, that might be an insult to Brooks. He has been crying about him for awhile now, even going so far as to cry on the paper's blog.

I have been fairly irritated by this whole process but I blame myself. I'm impatient, looking for news, suffering from Ranger news withdrawl.
If a decision is rendered today, I'd say Schultz handled things in a very orderly and timely manner.
I do think the CBA loophole is very unfair to Anaheim and needs to be closed. And I will reserve any other judgment til after 'the decision'.
I'd be pretty impressed if Schultz ends up dumping Anaheim for a team like Winnipeg or Minnesota.
Thatd be kinda funny and cool.

I'm sure this will be addressed in future.

Whoever signs a college free agent that chose not to sign should have to forfeit a compensatory pick to the team that originally drafted the player.

My guy tells me that players who don't sign with the team that drafted them should go back into the draft. I think they do that in baseball. Or, if they're granted free agency, the drafting team should get compensation, but not from the signing team. That's not really fair. Its also possible the drafting team could lowball the player, its not always the player wanting to 'take his talents' elsewhere. But, I totally agree that this loophole needs to be closed somehow.

What does Buccigross know? He had Staal playing in the Winter Classic. Buccigross has good contacts in NCAA hockey. He knows all of the players.
