Don't get me wrong I'm happy with our d core this year but how nice would this kid look in our line up. I just wish Gillis was just more aggressive and pulled out all stops to get this kid. It angers me know watching a BC boy playing for a division rival. Especially one as talented as Schultz.

How do you know MG didn't go all out to get him and the kid just chose to sign with a team full of guys his own age that are going to be pretty damn good in a few years over an older veteran team that has a set top 4 already?

Plus, if he was a Canuck and didn't get 5 points in his first game CDC would have been calling for Gillis to trade him......

Maybe he knew he wouldn't get 21 minutes of ice time with almost 4 min on the PP if he was with Van.....or maybe he wanted to be on a team that will let him play his style of game not like he would get to in VAN.

It was ultimately his choice, and he chose EDM. Can we just move on? It's just as bad as bringing up the Hodgson trade.

I can see why lots of BC born players would actually want to stay away from here.

Usual CDC response "ya, but if they have heart then they will want to win it in front of blah blah blah". Maybe so, but it might not be worth the abuse if they don't win it all, which will be the case most years.

I honestly didn't notice Schultz at all tonight. Aside from a couple of offensive chances, he really didn't catch my attention on anything.

Certainly going to be our #1 defensemen. Give him a couple more years to improve his game and he'll be our new and improved version of Matthias Ohlund in no time

He looked average at best today, his weakness is physicality, He seemed to get overwhelmed at times down low.

I liked Tanev's game better than his tonight.

The only thing about Justin Schultz that caught my eye today was that he wasn't wearing a typical d-man number. O.o

Pretty average game today, and the way he jumps up in the rush all the time is going to cost this Oilers team eventually - they don't have a good enough defence or goalie to let him roam like that. Plus, if we did sign him MG wouldn't have gone and gotten Garrison, so we would have only had 1 proper shutdown D man (Hamhuis) which is disgusting. Our defence makes enough mistakes as it is.

Schultz may end up being a great defenceman, but he's way too overated right now. The Sedins cycled on him quite a bit today and he is clearly not physical enough for the NHL, he couldn't get the puck off them. Meanwhile Nick Shultz came in, laid the body and ended the twins cycle eventually.

The BC boy didn't want to play in BC. He just didn't see himself getting the opportunity and didn't want to play on our 3rd pairing for 5-6 years. Who would he displace on our top 4? Edler? Garrison? Hamhuis? Bieksa? He wanted to play on the top 4 and that is why he went to Edmonton.

I think Paul Kariya didn't ever want to play for Vancouver (He said something about having no desire to play here - didn't state why though)

Kassian wanted to play in Vancouver more than J. Schultz

I was at the game , and I was watching for Schultz, cuz I am from Kelowna myself. I like it when Okanagan boys make it to the NHL. Didnt even notice him. I have no idea how he got third star. Just saying

He probably read through CDC. That is the most logical reason...plus the riot that happened after we lost to NYR.

The way I see it is if Schultz signed with the Canucks he would find himself in a Vandermeer/Barker situation. With signing to Edmonton he becomes their 2nd man. Edmonton needed him and had an important spot to offer, we had a spot on the roster but
he'd be collecting dust as out current D lines are pretty set. It's a no brainer career move IMO.

I believe Sakic and Neids said the same thing. None of them wanted the extra pressure.
