A maximum $92,500 signing bonus?

All 3 of those teams will be able to offer the exact same contract. He will pick where ever he wants to play. Money will not be a factor.

Money will indirectly be a factor. IMO it boils down to what team will give him the best chance to maximize his 2nd contract.

Murray stated a couple days ago that his team had a chance and were in the mix. But ya, I am still surprised. I would place them as the 5th team on the list and would be more worried about Van, Tor, and NYR.

I am still wondering about performance clauses. Even if they are equal between teams (which I believe they don't have to be), we might have a better offer in terms of possibility of reaching them (PP points for example).

Why would he consider Ottawa when they have the best offensive defencemen in the game who is his age and also RH?

With that being said, i'm going to let my Oiler fan inferiority complex shine through and say that we won't have to worry who he is paired with because he'll be paired with one of the Canucks defenders next season.
I agree with both those pairings. Then we have our other pair as Whitney and Green!

I'd wager sliding Justin a briefcase crammed full of new 100.00 bills on the lowdown, would go a long way to buy his loyalty.

If you ain't cheatin, you ain't compete'n. Whoever slips this cash to Justin Schultz.....we'll soon find out.

Doesn't surprise me. Good team with nice blend of youth and experience. Closer to competing than we are. Makes more sense than TO imo.
I had the sens in my top 4 mock shortlist.

I hope they send him the same DVD they presented to Heatley showing Horcoff's offensive wizardry.

If you've read anything about Krueger these past 2 days, I feel like it was a mistake not getting him to do the presentation to Schultz.

He's rightfully ours because we would have picked him if we didn't trade the pick to Anaheim

Per the Rishaug quote, Krueger is going.

Calgary, Boston and Detroit also among high-profile teams that didn't make Justin Shultz short-list...
