      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Speculation] Possibility Of Justin Schultz Signing With Vancouver

Recommended Posts

West Kelowna native, Justin Schultz, from Wisconsin U, possibly the best college player not in the NHL might become a Canuck. just like what Billy Sweatt did. Please read the link.

"Option 3

Since Schultz played a year of junior hockey after being drafted, he can become a free agent over the summer if he chooses. The NHL CBA has a loophole that says if you officially withdraw from school (simply has to tell UW he's leaving) and it's the fourth summer after you've been drafted, you can choose to become a free agent.

Not many players do this, but Jason Gregoire from North Dakota chose this route last year. Other players like Bill Sweatt from Colorado College have done the same.

In this scenario, Schultz could earn $925,000 in salary each season with a $92,500 signing bonus both years.

The obvious advantage to this would be that Justin could pick and choose where he wants to play. Being a top 10 prospect in the world, Schultz could essentially choose any team in the NHL to play for next season. Would he want to be closer to his home and play for the Vancouver Canucks? Would he want to go play with a former teammate, or choose a better situation?"

Doubt he'll come here. Sweatt hasn't even been given a chance to make the club, so why would he waste his time trying to crack the roster?

This is pure speculation. It would be nice, but it is very unlikely.

I would have to make a Mike Gillis SHRINE if this were to happen. But Bob Murray wants to sign him bad and right now he has the upper hand.

I loved this quote from the article:

"Schultz looks filthy good every shift he takes for Wisconsin and he clearly doesn't belong in college anymore. His ability to make plays at both ends and control the game is pretty high end," HP writer Corey Pronman wrote on January 18th.

He might come here because of the hometown factor but he might also want to go somewhere where he'll actually have a chance to play. Vancouver isn't the greatest place for prospect development. Another factor is that he plays on the same team as Labate.

Why wouldn't he get a chance in Vancouver? Seems to me we're going to have some holes on D next season.

He would have just as good of a chance to make the team as Tanev, Sauve, or Connauton.

He's 21, weighs 185lbs. He will need to fill out before he makes any teams roster or he will get manhandled.

That would be really good. I hope that we can package Sauve with Scheneids for a top 2 pick this year, then Salo will retire and sign Schultz. He can be on the top pairing in the AHL and maybe be called up for a few NHL games.

I'd love to sign him, but it would make sense for him to go somewhere where he can make an immediate impact.

It'd be epic, but I don't see it happening. Not sure why he doesn't just re-up with the Ducks!
