have there been any oilers prospects that have had a similar skill set/upside to Schultz?

Chorney back when we all had him ahead of Petry and 2nd in our prospect rankings behind Schremp.

what separates schultz from chorney? hockey sense? seems like their draft reports were pretty similar. smaller d-men with offensive ability and good skating.

Is schultz better defensively? i think stauffer said he was voted best defensive defensemen the last couple years in the WCHA

goal scoring would be one. Chorney had comparable number of assists but never the goals. Schultz to me would be a Chorney\Fedun + a killer shot.

I was watching some of Schultz's highlights on Youtube last night and its crazy the amount of goals he scores on his wrist shot, even from the point. Gonna be curious to see if he'll be able to beat NHL goalies with his point shot wrister.

I think this type of scoring translates very well to the NHL game. No matter how good a goalie is, screened shots sneaking through are incredibly difficult to handle.

A lot of times in the NHL it is more important to get the puck through the traffic on net than it is to have a hard slap shot from the point.

A good example of this is Karlsson this year, he was very good a getting the puck through and it resulted in a lot of points for him. I remember when the Oilers played the Senators this year Karlsson scored from a wrist shot from the top of the point that was not a very hard shot at all.

Petry was somewhat similar, but Schultz has a much higher upside.

Not even close, Petry was ahead of Chorney from the first time that I saw him play. Chorney couldn't carry Schultz' jock. Petry was always the better prospect and I had him at #2 behind Schremp until Schremp's last year or two here

Comparing Schultz to Chorney is a very bad comp, to be fair not many here get to watch NCAA games, but I do and it's not even close.

This is what i'm hoping for when he's on the point. He seems to have pretty good accuracy with that wrister, and hopefully he can continue having success on the NHL level. If he can, i will be very happy, and we'll have a killer PP.

Gonna be nice to finally see a good offensive dman with a right handed shot accepting Nuge's cross ice passes on the PP. Krueger must be lickin his lips thinking of our PP combinations this year. Schultz also likes to join in on the rush too it seems.. I'm sure Krueger will have no problem giving him the green light to do this whenever theres an opportunity to do so. Can't wait for the season to start.

That doesnt necessarily mean very much, was Khabibulin in net?

What Schultz really seems great at is creating angles from the blue line to get shots through.

No need to get excited. I was not talking about your expert analysis. HF rankings had Chorney ranked higher then Petry for a while and had him #2 on Edmonton's list. Possibly in 07 when Chorney had 31pts in 39 games or in 08-09 when Petry's production took a dive.

Petry's sophomore season was a statistical nightmare, that said having actually watched games and not just stat watch, you could see that while he had some struggles defensively (mostly laterally below the faceoff circles) he was far from the cause of his poor stats. He was a really good player on a REALLY bad team. I remember some people saying that Plante was > Petry at that point too.

I'm hearing everything from Doughty upside to comparisons to Chorney when it comes down to Schultz. Defensemen are a mysterious lot, you never really know what you're going to get.

Don't forget the Oil also had S. Smith and J. Smith in the past. How many teams can boast not just 1, but 2 pairs of d-men with the same name?

Not many, I'm willing to bet.

As a totally random aside, I just realized that d-men sounds very much like demon, and was suddenly a bit frightened.
