Please give a sales pitch as to why Schultz should sign with your team and not others. Everyone is offering the same contract so this will make it easier for the decision process. There is already a number of teams (8 or 9) interested in his services. He wants to make a decision by tomorrow.
The overhaul continued in Ottawa this offseason, with an influx of new talent joining the club, and some that will look to contribute to the team in the near future. We decided not to overpay in a thin free agent pool and handcuff our club with bad contract(s), thus leaving us in an excellent position to add as we feel the need to next season with over $7M in cap space.

The Rangers are ecstatic to announce a couple of signings!
The Rangers have come to terms with UFA LWer, and former Captain Canada, Ryan Smyth!
We are very happy to add Ryan to our locker room and our team and believe he can provide great depth scoring as our #2/3 LW while getting PP time as well. We love his leadership and his constant work ethic which we feel will fit in well in our locker room.
1 year @ 3 million
The Rangers have also come to terms with gritty 4th line center Adam Burish. We feel Adam, who can play wing or center, will add versatility and more grit to our bottom line playing alongside Brian Boyle and Brandon Prust.
