Can't imagine the Hawks would do that. I'd be hesitant, but would settle if we changed the 2nd to a conditional 1st. If Chicago makes the conference finals, it's a 1st, if they don't it's a 2nd. I'd do the deal then. Does Chicago even have a cap dump though? Frolik maybe?
Olesz. Holl + 1st or Clendening + conditional 1st would be they type of return I would probably be ok with.
Pretty sure we'd have to sweeten the deal. Leddy > Schultz now and in the future.
Wow, I actually havent been following his progress, I didnt know the kid had advanced that far.. I thought he was struggling a bit where Shultz seems like a steady veteran presence for a playoff contender..
But again, Im sure you guys know more about it then I do. I just thought it would be cool if there was a chance to get Leddy back.
Did not expect Gilbert. He showed some offense early in his career.
I think CF really wants to get rid of any former Lemaire-esque players. While Schultz was my first favorite player, and I have always wanted to see him do well, he was conditioned to play Lemaire's style. Mobile, decent stick, and fling it up the boards.
gilbert bring some offense thats for sure but isn't he injured? also russo just tweeted players are shocked by this move, think GMCF is trying to send a message to get their **** together because tenure means jack ****
Schultz to me seemed the product of his D partner more than anything. Was great with Johnsson, was good with Burns, was mediocre to bad with anyone else. Didn't see him much pre-lockout.
I don't know how many times I've seen him watch the goalie pull the puck out of the back of the net because he's not clearing the crease or anywhere near his man.
His best years were with Mitchell, imo. He was the first guy I really wanted to do well. His stick positioning and gap control were unbelievable under Lemaire. But Lemaire stifled any offensive ability/first pass the first few years to make him become someone who is very routine in his plays.
