So, uh, can we trade for Hertl?
Why? Did he score 8 points in a game or something?
I think it was clear that my post was sarcastic, but even so, the kid has been unreal. That 4th goal of the night tonight was just nuts.
Why on earth are people talking about trading J.Schultz in his second season. Jeez, give him some time to develop his defensive game, not to mention he still needs time to adjust to an entire new coaching system.
It was talented but it was made possible by the fact the Rangers clearly gave up. Just disgusting on the Rangers side.
Tomorrow they will be packaging him with Eberle
Which his other three goals helped lend a hand towards. What'ta beast.
Any who, blah blah blah, let's trade Eberle, let's trade Schultz.
If I were a GM, if I wasn't able to move the peripheral parts around the kids to add to the team, the only things I'd ever trade this early in the season are our assets (prospects/draft picks).
That said, it is early, and they won't have nearly the same value.
His lack of size makes precisely my point. Currently, he's 6'2, 188 lbs, and he'll get stronger as he puts on more mass as he matures as an adult. He's got another 4-5 years of development as a defenseman until he's entering his prime. You are writing him off incredibly early, despite the fact that he has an awesome skill set offensively. Your proposition of trading him seems premature to say the least. He's a marketable commodity, because he's got an enormously high ceiling. It would be a mistake to trade him.
Love that jpg
I'm still amazed. What a performance.. The Sharks are always fun to watch.
Well he has played 51 NHL games. He's obviously the player that he is, and there is no chance he'll improve in his own zone. And the 29p he has in those 51 games don't really matter.
Omark did that move forever ago. You can't embed youtube videos at specific times so I'll just have to post the link.
Hmm for some reason that link won't skip ahead to the right time.

Really? I disagree I think he'll improve on his defensive positioning as he gets more exposed to difficult situations like last night.
edit: I went full ******.
Um, he was being heavily sarcastic.
haha I knew something was weird. I was trying to read his post on my tiny phone screen while watching some highlight and it just blew past me.
People can be such idjits on this board, my sarcasm detector no longer works.
This I pretty much need the sarcasm emoticon to comprehend any kind of sarcasm no matter how obvious.
Amazing what a bit of confidence can do. I was just thinking how we could have built a pretty good line of FA and waiver acquisitions - Jokinen-Brunner-Raymond. All three are lighting it up.
The whole McKenzie thing on the Oilers open to acquiring a d-man doesn't seem like news to me. Did anyone really think MacT wasn't going to be looking at adding those pieces that he missed out on during the summer? Reading the piece on TSN it just doesn't scream to me that MacT is in panic mode and will do something soon, more he is still looking to upgrade his team as are a lot of GM's.
This is probably the best place to ask this... but whatever happened to that "wow" trade that Stauffer has been talking about for the last year and a half?
Seemed like whenever interest in this club has waned, he brought up the possibility of that "wow" trade.
So is Stauffer full of ****, or did the "wow" trade pass them by when the Luongo/Schneider issue was dealt with?
I think that article was written for leaf fans. It's a bunch of BS just to feed people something so they can go off on it. Did you see some of the trade rumors? Yak+ for Remier and Gardiner...really? Like c'mon! We def don't need another young d-man here, reimer is questionably a better goalie than Dubnyk and I def wouldn't risk Yak on that question. Big time pass and Bob Mac, keep your mouth shut!
Anyone talking about trading J. Schultz (unless we are adding +++ for an elite #1 like Doughty, Weber, Pietro etc.) should shake their head.
He controlled the play so well on our first two goals of that comeback game. He is already a #1 guy in terms of QBing the Powerplay. His speed suits our team so well, and he now has a huge advantage for us when it comes to hybrid icing.
While he still has work to do in his own end (and he will grow in the area), he is still usually the first man to the puck when it is chipped in.
I still can't wait to see him and Nurse as a pairing one day.
I love Justin Schultz and in no way want him traded, but his defense is not just suspect, but horrific. One of the worst in the league in his own end. Really hope he can get it figured out..
