    Do you think he now regrets going to the Oilers after it looks like they are still at square 1 of their 8-9 year (so far) rebuild and the Ducks at least look like a perennial playoff team for the near future.

    No. He's earning money he wouldn't have gotten in Anaheim, and has guarnateed ice time.

    Don't care. Considering our team right now, I'm not really convinced we'd have been better with him.

    We indeed wouldn't, because he would be in the AHL learning to play defense.

    Agree with Soj. Super over it. To much youth movement to go around as is. He would be a second topic. Would it be nice if he gave a winning team a chance? Maybe? But it's nothing to write home about. Good post Soj

    I'd actually say he did a pretty good job judging how he would have ranked relative to his competition in our system. I doubt any of us would have thought that Magnus would surpass him this year. Maybe he did.

    Uh well. After watching him try to play defense after four years of conditioning in the NCAA, I feel like we kind of dodged a bullet. Though Schultz would have been a great help to our powerplay I think.

    I'm sure that there is some regret.

    I'm definitely bitter about Edmonton making a big deal about it. In terms of Schultz, I feel bad for him since he has to play with the Oilers. If he did sign with Anaheim, chances are he would be in the AHL.

    Umm what?

    Absolutely 100% regret.
    As long as Edmonton keeps losing.

    No doubt. What certainly worked out for him is the estimate of getting big minutes right away and being able to contribute offensively, which was always the far biggest reason for him moving. But there's no way he didn't expect to win a lot more games with any team he would go to. I really wonder what the Oilers will look like next season, in terms of personnel rather than suckiness. Then again, MacT saying he hopes the Smid trade will have been the last one for a long time... well, that would probably mean they'll have had another coach hired next summer and be sick of him by November.

    That's not at all true. Murph offered him the same money and the same ice-time. There are some moves that would not have been made had he actually signed here, Souray for instance. Yes he's stinking it defensively in Edmonton but that is just a poorly run organization from top to bottom. I think he'd be a much more effective player here than with the Oilers.

    But this is all totally moot and I relish in his misfortune (expect his injury. I'd never wish harm on a player).

    Another reason why he wouldn't regret it.

    I hate to say it's great that the Oilers are terrible, but it's great that Schultz is on a terrible team.

    I don't care how he feels, he has made a large wager with his life, if Anaheim makes it to SCF and or win it then he looks like an idiot, if somehow Edmonton makes it to the SCF then he looks like a hero to the Oilers. Of course now to most ducks fan...everyone needs a villain.

    It was a match made in heaven. Haven't liked the club ever since the Burke-Lowe dispute over the Penner signing. God, how right Burke was on some of those things. And years later, the Oil looks to have been "run into the sewer" as Burkie put it back then under Lowe more than ever. And that ****** still has press conferences reminding people of his Stanley Cup wins as a player in desperate attempts to create any idea of authority... :laugh:

    No, he got more money by going FA. It's not in Bob's character to guarantee rookies ice time, he told him they needed him, i.e. player of his profile. I'm sure that didn't mean "you'll play no matter what".

    Honestly, I really don't care. Best revenge is living well.

    Ehhh it's a second topic to me. Our team is winning. Having youth movement grab the chains after having our Captain down and out. Norfolk is potent for anymore injuries. Yah I'm on a tangent. But anyways

    I wonder if he was swayed a bit by media speculation. Everyone was buying into the Oilers being on the cusp of greatness with all of their high draft picks, whereas on the rare occasions that we were mentioned it was always a message of no hope.

    All I regret is that we didn't get anything back for the investment that was put into him.

    At least he'd be winning. Ba-dum tshh.

    There's no way Murray guaranteed him ice time. And Souray was a signing to address size and shooting from the back end. So no.

    Feels good knowing his team is doing so poorly and our record has been so strong.

    I don't think he really regrets passing on us, but I do think he wishes he would have signed with someone else.

    I personally think he would be on our team. The pressure is getting to him (I ****ing love it), but I think he'd do better here. I think he'd be in over Vatanen. Oh well, I hope he becomes an AHL captain. Will continue to give him **** on his twitter until his traitor ass blocks me.
