Kind of what I'm thinking too. Schenn and Schultz play a completely different style.

Schultz will have to compete with Rielly, Gardiner, and Phaneuf for PP time in TO.

They just opened up a top four spot, the Gardiner crap, and all that jazz. It just makes sense.

McKenzie just hinted at Edmonton again saying we're interested and Schultz could be interested as well.

Saw it on Sportscenter

He'll continue to note that Edmonton is in the running, only due to the fact that it makes the most sense for him to come here.

That being said, I have always thought he would be going to T.O. and will until he eventually picks one of the 29 teams.

Phaneuf, Liles, Gardiner, Gunnarsson, Komisarek, Franson. Seems they still have 6 NHL d-men, including a few PP options. Them moving Schenn isn't nearly the death knell that you suggest.

I hope he just hears out our pitch. If he goes to Toronto or Vancouver so be it. Obviously would prefer it to be Toronto in that case.

Yeah it does make the most sense. He will get a lot of minutes and play with the best core of forwards of any Canadian Team. If he wants to play in Canada there is no better top 6 including Vancouver's.

I'll see any small notion of anything as a sign that Schultz signs with Toronto.

Glad you spent so much effort just to troll.
How's that trolling? The Oilers have flat out said more than once this week that their prospect pool is thin at forward, not defense, and that they'd be pursuing that through the draft. It had nothing to do with keeping a spot open for Schultz.

Besides, outside of Murray there are no defenseman from this draft who are immediate competition for Schultz, who is years ahead of them. Probably wouldn't have affected his decision either way.

Oh ok, thanks for the heads up.

I guess we'll see what happens in the next week or so.

Perception is reality.

You know Burke is going to tell Schultz that he traded Schenn to make room in the top 4 for him.

Reality is that trading Schenn only opens up room in the press box and the bottom pairing.

I think he is the best defenceman in the draft, but I think he should go back to junior since he missed most of this season.

That's what Burke said. He said he was #1 on their list and they would have drafted him if they had the first overall pick.

Disagree. Different type of defenseman.
I think the TML hurt themselves in the JS sweepstakes with the drafting of Reilly.
TML traded for JVR to get bigger in their top 6 not to create space for Schultz.

EDM makes a ton of sense. Between us and the Canucks imo.

If you're Justin Schultz and you are looking at 2 depth charts, compare:

Jake Gardiner
Morgan Reilly
Stuart Percy
Carl Gunarsson
Dion Phaneuf
JM Liles
Cody Franson
Mike Komisarek

vs

Ryan Whitney
Ladislav Smid
Jeff Petry
Oscar Klefbom
Nick Schultz
Andy Sutton




Unless his love for Gardiner is just that powerful, he'd be dumb to sign in Toronto over Edmonton.

That has nothing to do with opening up a spot for Schultz, it has more to do with adding much needed size at the forward spot and Schenn was one of their best trading chips plus Schenn wasn't playing top 4 anyway so it didn't open up a spot for Schultz.
I would say that if anything that drafting Rielly is a sign that Burke isn't counting on Schultz signing there.

I never thought so before but i really think that the Oilers are frontrunners, it makes sense on so many levels and especially with the drafting of Yakupov over Murray, that's another sign that Schultz is a realistic possibility to come here since he won't be in competition with Murray for a top 4 spot plus adding Yakupov has to be enticing for Schultz.

I really hope he signs here, because he would have chosen us over every other team in the league. It would be especially sweet to sign him when Vancouver/Toronto/New York are trying hard to sign him, since the three of them are considered to be "premiere" destinations for UFAs (though in Toronto's case, maybe only in their own minds).

Much more importantly though, he would fill such a need for us and could make us a much more dangerous team, provided he brings the goods.
