happens all the time, it works wonders with Kesler... on the twins? Not so much.

Schultz is going to continue to make all 29 other teams jealous, whether they'd admit it or not. Essentially a free blue chip prospect, and probably one of the best there is

I agree. Hes quite average even at AHL level, and its obviously going to be way harder in the NHL. To think he wont be somewhat of a defensive liability would be foolish.

Of course, he would look much better playing with a solid d man. Marincin is very inconsistent. Great 1 night, disaster the next. Schultz gets a ton of 2 on 1 practice.

He does seem to have very high hockey IQ, so the possibility of improvement is there for sure. If the Oilers can teach him to take the body, I think he could end up quite competent.. Big if tho..

His offense is without question tho. Soo good.

He plays big minutes and is a +10 on the season? Plus minus doesn't matter, he's a bum!!

He gets a rare minus in a tough loss? What a scrub. Can't play defense!

28, Anaheim isn't jealous, we don't want backstabbers.

Or did I forget the +11 for the season? Hmm Plus/minus isn't really a reliable stat imo though.

Yes, I've seen no jealousy or sour grapes whatsoever out of Anaheim.

Isn't Shultz 22 years old? How can you compare him to 18 year old prospects? Just doesn't make any sense at all...

Yeah, he is one week younger than Erik Karlsson. That's a good comparable for him. Just a different route to NHL.

He was drafted in 2008.

Other defenseman one may have heard of from that draft?

Doughty
Karlsson
Pietrangelo
Bogosian
Carlson
Gardiner
Myers
Schenn
Voynov
Hamonic

Those are his age comparables.

I'm not here to troll but at least you guys something back for Pronger (and ended up getting Eberle with one of the picks). We lost Schultz for absolutely nothing because he completely misled our GM and coaching staff.

Well looks like he has quite a bit of catching up to do since all the guys you've mentioned are established nhlers on the top pairings of top teams in the NHL. So much hype for this guy...

Nothing wrong with the hype. Some of you hype-haters can hate more when you see how good he will be in NHL.

You lost Schultz for nothing because your GM didn't sign him or trade him before he hit free agency. Schultz had no obligation to play for the Ducks and had every right to test the market. It sucks, but it happens. See Blake Wheeler or Riley Nash.

I'd take the bolded with a grain of salt. The accusations made by members of the Ducks organization are just one side of the story so it's silly to take them as fact. It would make sense for them to lie to get a little sympathy or to try to cover up their own incompetence by claiming Schultz misled them.

Offensively, I think he will have a lot of troublesome moments in the defensive end.

Doubt it. Especially when his d partner will likely be Nick Schultz

Wait hype because of his 1.5ppg in the AHL or hype that each GM gave a presentation to get him on their team?
