That is a big cap hit for a rookie, but of course it is a 2 way contract. Still, Slats would want to leave that space open for a potential callup anyways.

So if we sign Schultz its basically a 3.75 million dollar UFA signing.

Same kind of deal you'd get if we had a top draft pick. Look at it this way: If Schultz was draft eligible this year, he probably would have gone in the top-10.

VAN has 6 D under contract for next season. Bieksa and Tanev are RD. They want to re-sign Salo. 3 RD.

And if that competition (read: no competition) scares him off I don't want him.

Yeah it did. The first thought was originally the one that was quoted, now it's some boring crap about the two worst franchises in the league.

Either he learned that the story he heard was BS or someone flipped out at him for printing that bit of info

Burke probably flipped out. He flipped out a few weeks ago about Luke Schenn being available which is what Friedman wrote. Burke denied it. He traded the player two weeks later. LOL. Burke also has a problem with the CBC broadcasts and how the Leafs are portrayed. This guy is too much.

I'm bothered by all these players who just have to play in a specific town and/or with their sibling.
Just play the game. Pampered babies.

Why? Don't factors like location affect where you want to work?

Does Schultz have to wait until he actually turns 22 in order to be eligible to sign a 2 year ELC, or is it just that he'll be 22 by September 15th and that's good enough to give him 2 year status?

Does it matter? He'll be playing with a #1 defenseman either way

Going to be excited if we can pick this guy up, if not, we have a chance in the FA market and have plenty of depth in the pipelines.

He will be 22 by September 15th, so he must sign a 2 year ELC. Doesn't matter if he signs it on July 1st or after he turns 22.

No one mentions Detroit, however after reading this, Detroit could get him and it makes a lot of sense for Schultz. They lost Stuart and Lidstrom, which opens up 2 spots for him, and it's Detroit, they're always contenders.

Quote:
And that put a number of teams hot on his trail, among them the Detroit Red Wings.

"We've contacted his agents to express the Detroit Red Wings are interested in signing him to a contract," Detroit GM Ken Holland told MLive.com. "We think there's a tremendous opportunity in Detroit."

Schultz and Red Wings rookie defenseman Brendan Smith were teammates for one season at Wisconsin, which could give Detroit a bit of an advantage. Also, because the Wings have lost blueliners Nicklas Lidstrom and Brad Stuart this offseason, there's an NHL roster spot available for Schultz.

"We're prepared to give him the opportunity to be on our team," Holland said. "With the loss of Nicklas Lidstrom and Brad Stuart, there's a tremendous opportunity. We're trying to rebuild on the fly.

"We think he would be a good fit."

Brendan Smith is overrated because of his name. If his name were Staal, no one would care about him.

Bottom line is there are a lot of teams that offer him a pretty good shot. Not sure there really is anyone one that stands out right now, and I'm not really sure I believe the whole "he wants to play in Canada!" narrative at this point. The guy himself hasn't said anything, it's all the various Canadian sportswriters pushing that story.

Do you not believe anything unless a player says it publicly?

Bob McKenzie doesn't have a history of being a cheerleader for Canada. Why are Brooks, Strickland and Carchidi spreading this Canadian conspiracy?

No it don't really matter. I just thought he might be more inclined to be paired with McDonagh since they are buddies.

Well I'm almost assured that Suter is going there

it's apples and oranges. for better or for worse, the nhl has a system in place that allows owners to divide-up the players. i say, if you want to be in the nhl, you do it on their terms.
i'm not saying it's a perfect system or that it's wrong for a guy to want to go to a specific team.
but - in the end - i think you either play by the rules or you shouldn't play at all. sure, he's not breaking the letter of the rule, but i don't feel he's with the spirit of the rules.
it's great if he ends up on the rangers, and he certainly has the right...i'm just saying i don't find it to be kosher. no biggie. just my opinion. go play with the team that drafted you.

Brendan Smith has been a pro for 2 years and he has barely played in the NHL. The Wings will be big players for Suter and every veteran defenseman on July 1.

I was only saying "does it matter" to brag about the defensive depth this team has, haha.

I agree, I feel he should be paired with McDonagh if he signs here. Girardi should be re-united with Staal since he'll should be at 100% and playing for a full season. McDonagh may make Schultz feel a little more comfortable on the ice and having him as a defensive partner will make his transition to the NHL much easier.

Assuming Sauer is healthy and Schultz signs, we are going to have quite the defensive squad next season. DZ, Sauer, Schultz, Girardi, McDonagh and Staal. If everyone maintains the same level of play as last season and Schultz can hold his own, that group may be the best combination in the league, IMO.
