Mike Eaves (Justin Schultz coach) was just on Team 1040 and he said "Justin is a massive Canucks fan" and went further to say that Justin was visibly upset when they lost in 11'

The best fit for him playing time wise however is Edmonton. Do you join the team your a huge fan of to play a less role than you feel you can provide ? or do you go to a team where you can play and be a contributor....?

I don't agree that Edmonton gives him the best shot to increase his value.

If he's as good as everyone thinks, I don't think he would have a problem beating out Tanev (no shot), or a 38 year old Salo (who they probably want to use sparingly anyways)

Top 4 minutes in Vancouver>>>Top 4 minutes in Edmonton. Only difference is he has to earn it here. And if he's made it this far, I don't think he should have a problem with that.

With how good everyone says he is, he shouldn't have a problem cracking the lineup! This should be an easy choise for him. Let's do it Justin!

So he's a 'massive Canucks fan', we're contenders with a great core, he'd be surrounded by people that could mentor him and I think he should sign here.. But seriously like Playboi19 said, 'Playoffs + Playing on your favorite team > No Playoffs + Losing + More Icetime.' Couldn't agree more!

I think Canucks have more to offer on the mentorship side of things. Although he may be NHL ready it does not mean he couldn't benefit from the collective experience of Hammer, Juice, Salo and Edler. Who does Edmonton have that can compare to that? He may well go their and crash and burn, in Van he can truly develop his game and weather out any small storms that may come to pass.
Sig too big.

Plus all of the extra unnecessary pressure that he would face in Edmonton because they have no D.

It all depends on if he wants to be given ice time or actually have to earn it.

If he wants the easy route, Edmonton is the obvious choice. He'll get all the minutes he can handle. If he's willing to be pushed to his limits and earn ever minute with one of the most offensive defenses in the league, it's gotta be Vancouver.

Wayne Gretzky confirms he called Justin Schultz as part of the Oilers push to sign the young d-man.Paul Coffey also part of the Edmtn pitch.

How ???? desperate they are eh. What a joke that franchise has turned into. If the rumor that we won't give him a spot on our third pairing is true then I'm going to be really rattled. Poor decision on Gillis part if true BOLD MOVES MIKE LETS SEE SOME

You just don't sign with some team when you are a diehard fan of another, especially one that is in the same division.

i think his choice, will speak volumes about his character.....edmonton can offer him top 4 minutes, on the canucks though, he needs to earn his playing time.....if he is as good as everyone says and he believes, he should be able to grab some premier ice time....he has to walk the walk.....we all hope he signs here.

My opinion on Justin Schultz changes whenever I hear anything about him. At this point, I really don't care where this kid signs, I'll be glad if it is with the Canucks but it is a 22 year old with 0 NHL games played. I would be fuming if I was an Anaheim fan.

Have fun in Edmonton, Toronto, New York, Philadelphia, Detroit, Vancouver or wherever you go kid.

If he chooses Edmonton because of guaranteed top 4 role or something, they can have him. If we gave him that without it being earned, it wouldn't say much about someone like Edler or Bieksa who had to work to get there. I'm sure he could slot in there, but he should earn it like everybody else. If he's as good as everybody says, that shouldn't be a problem.

If he's a Canuck fan surely he hates our rival Oilers.

Schultz signing with Vancouver makes just as much sense as signing with the Oilers. We have a big-3 of Hamhuis, Bieksa and Edler who will most likely eat up 22-24 minutes a game for the next 3 or 4 seasons, but this will most likely be Salo's last season after which we will need another 22-24 minute defenceman to play in our top-4 or top-2. Enter: Justin Shultz.

He should play 15-20 minutes next season, then jump up to a top-4 role the following season which makes far more sense for his development than jumping straight into the NHL. Don't forget - he's as unproven as it gets.

What makes no sense that in 2 years he'll potentially be a UFA again (or am i wrong about this?), so he can come hear win us 2 playoffs then goto edmonton for a year win them a playoff then come back home to win use 3-5 more playoffs...
Geeze.
Seriously though, if I was edmonton I'd just tell him we have a good core of young players learning the game, if he was to learn with them then come aboard but if not we'll talk in 2 years time.

Unless this is 1984, and he received the call on a roto-dialer, I don't see how this would convince Schultz.

Sweet, a couple of legends told me how great it was to play in Edmonton. Too bad for Paul Coffey that he never got the luxury of playing alongside Ladislav Smid.

Given neither player is affiliated with the organization in any meaningful way, I don't really see how this would be that influential in Schultz's decision.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

Down by the River - Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.

I'm a canucks fan, and dont give a crap about oilers because they suck... Realistically I'd like all Canadian teams to do well, (Canadian homer I am), I'd cream in my pants if all 6 Canadian teams made it into the playoffs one year.

Hi JS,

We have nothing to do with the Oilers and would not go back for anything. But really, sign there. You get April - September off! More time in the OK!
