Then a promising prospects from the ducks ditches and lands... with the Oilers

But Schultz has looked lights out in the AHL, living up to the hype
The second round pick the ducks used to pick Schultz was also the pick that was sent to the ducks, by the Oilers, as compensation in the Dustin Penner offer sheet signing.

I think thats a little more ironic then the whole Pronger fiasco.

I watched alot of his college highlights and noticed that he scored so many goals using his wrist shot. Made me wonder if that wrister was gonna work in the pro's. Now he's having the same success with that wrist shot in the AHL and hopefully that continues into the NHL as well.

Totally love how he jumps into the play. Seems to be building good chemistry with Ebs and RNH already. Can't wait to see him with the Oilers.

They're 2-1 after 3 games, and Schultz has over a PPG, so he adjusting very well to the pro game.

OKC has been good, not great, mostly because there are very high expectations since they were a great team last year and have some NHL additions.

Would you say that they're overhyped ? Or need time to gel ?

Obviously he has been. OKC's "star" players (RNH, Eberle, PRV, ect) havent really showed up yet. Once they all get firing on all cylinders they will be a powerhouse team.

Do you think that it's a lack of effort ?

Well, Eberle and RNH are playing together and did a lot last year, so don't really need time to gel.

Just a bit rusty, neither of them played a preseason game, and last weekend they were pretty average.

They dominated tonight and had a lot of chances, and finally got on the scoresheet, so I would expect them to continue to dominate going forward.

In this situation I hate to do the "I told you so," but this kid is proving the doubters wrong. It's still very early but I'm just as confident as I was when I said he is as good of a prospect than any defenseman in 2012.

I got over Gillis' extremely lacklustre attempt and fail at getting this kid but it's coming back now.

This is why Edmonton brought out the big boys to meet him, and it paid off despite being mocked for it.


Edit: Gotta give Ducks fans credit, they've been saying for quite awhile how good he is and watching him dominate in the WCHA proved that, it's still funny how little people knew of him before the media storm

Time to gel IMO. Tonight we saw some flashes of dominance and won 5-2. Tomorrow we play Lake Erie again (the team that we played our first 2 games against) so it'll be interesting to see if we can solve Lake Erie's D and goaltending as they have only given up 4 goals in 3 games this year.

Yup, Ducks fans were right, I honestly feel bad for them, but the joy that I have that he's in our system drowns that out pretty quickly. I forgot where I posted it, but I said that Anaheim's scouts are exceptional when it comes to drafting D, those guys are great IMO.

It still pisses me off that we didn't get him, from all reports Gillis didn't make much of an effort at all (compared to Edmonton), and I would actually say that will be one of his bigger mistakes in his tenure here

Schultz and Garrison on July would have been fantastic

How so? The Canucks personally went to visit him in Toronto. Canucks never do that sort of stuff so I'd say they did go out of their way for him. He wanted more playing time and he chose the Oilers. There's nothing more the Canucks could have done.

Well, Lindholm and Vatanen are doing a good job of distracting us from the loss of Schultz. It also helps that we had Sbisa and Fowler on the team too. Anaheim might be one of the few teams that could lose a prospect like Schultz without it setting them back too much. It still sucks, but that's life.

We're pretty stoked with our scouting of late. Not just defensemen either, though they definitely stand out the most for us.

Just like we were right about Jake Gardiner

Our rage is being mitigated by the stellar play of Vatanen and Lindholm. We add Sbisa and Fowler to that pair and it doesn't seem like the end of the world that he left.

It sucks because Anaheim traded Gardiner in that deal with Lupul for Beauchemin because they thought they could afford to trade a top D prospect for a veteran top 4 guy because they had Schultz who was up-and-coming.

Now he's with Edmonton and I can understand their frustration with that, but he's a damn good player and Oilers fans have every right to be pumped. Sucks for Ducks fans, but you guys still have Vatanen and Lindholm to go along with Sbisa and Fowler. I think most teams would kill for defensive prospects like them.

That's awesome. So glad Vatanen is working out. Still amazed at these beauties, albeit 2 years ago:

Don't want to hijack this thread. You guys really lucked out. I said all year that Edmonton should draft a blue chip D, but you guys didn't have to. You got your forward and your defender.

Yeah. I think most of the reason why I always seem to favor forwards in the draft (and that won't change this year of all years) is because we always seem to have a great defender or tandem of defenders in the system. Fowler, Lindholm, Schultz, Gardiner, Vatanen, Clark, Welinski is a pretty good group.

At least your team signed a defender.

Rangers still have Stu Bickel and Matt Gilroy as key options on the bottom pair. Schultz would've been THE perfect fit to the Rangers defense. We haven't had a RH star caliber PMD since Zubov and Schultz would slide in perfectly alongside Staal.
