Word is, just as Oilers had Gretzky call Schultz, Ducks tried to get Niedermayer to talk to him. Schultz wouldn't take his calls.

James Mirtle ‏@mirtle

Now I don't know Schultz at all and won't comment on his character. But the team is obviously upset and so are players around the league.

He wouldn't even take a call from a HOF defenseman? What a prick.

That kid must be getting some bad advice from someone or he's too full of himself to even look at all the options.

He'll bust just like most of the over hyped punks that have gone down this route

Sounds like Vancouver, New York and Toronto all are out on Schultz.

Looks like it's coming down to Edmonton, Minnesota, Ottawa and a mystery team.

Is this one team out of the running thing all orchestrated too? The best players in the league aren't worth all this hype. Who the hell is Schultz?

I'm not believing that story until I see Schultz or Niedermayer tell it. Not only would it be very rude but it would be so mind-bogglingly stupid I just can't believe it.

Oh, I was only asking about the QOs. So if they can't turn the QO into a contract before July 1, is that a mistake on capgeek's part? To list the Irwin offer as a contract contract (not QO contract) before it is one? Or is it just that they got the Irwin details and couldn't get the others? Do we assume that the other QOs were accepted?

It wasn't a signed QO. His QO would have mandated a 5% raise on NHL salary. His NHL salary went from $740k to $650, a better than 10% cut. Capgeek should have called it an extension. It was a negotiated extension. The likely leverage was a >50% raise in AHL salary which was not mandated. The contract alone says that he does not expect to get callups to the parent club and if the club needs him it will be easier for the club to call him up with a lower salary. It likely means that DW plans on capping out as well.

He could be a top four defenseman right now and the potential to be more.

There's no difference in money and term, it's all about where Justin Schultz wants to play. A unique position to be sure.

I agree though, I don't like all the hype surrounding a guy who hasn't even touched NHL ice. I think this whole process could be a negative impact on him and his eventual team.

@tsnjamesduthie: Too many negative tweets on Schultz. He has handled this like any highly sought after UFA would. We (Twitter,media) created the drama.

Gotta protect the future Oiler...haha!!

@Buccigross: I was told this morning it was Edmonton for Justin Schultz.

I know nothing about the kid. Hope he's worth the hype if he does end up with the Oil.

Not to knock your team, but why would a BC kid choose Edmonton if he could go anywhere he wanted? Guaranteed ice time?

I think it's the future. The Oil have a great young core & Dubnyk is good. If these kids grow together they will be a real good team.

I'd be worried about the lack of depth at the D position in Edmonton. It looks like he could be getting some top assignments and without the proper development and backup, he could get eaten alive. Hope it works out for him though.

From the looks of it, he has a high end of Eric Karlsson or Brian Campbell. Not much defense but a lot of offense. Although he was effective defensively for Wisconsin. The reason to choose the Oil is that most teams only have room for one of that kind of dman at the NHL level. Most other teams have that slot filled. It gives him a much better chance of being an NHLer from day one to go with the Oil because they are one of the few teams that don't have that slot filled. Wisconsin is a good program that has graduated a lot of NHL dmen so his defense may not be that bad. The downside for him is that he is beanpole thin which doesn't bode well for the first year of his professional career. He would be well served to spend the summer beefing up and possibly taking a minor league year so as not to subject his less than ideal body type to the greater pounding of the NHL.

Wow, the mistakes just keep piling up. This from the initial announcement about who got QOs and who didn't:

@PollakOnSharks: "#Sjsharks give QOs to Galiardi, Shepard, Stalock, Petrecki, McLaren, Mashinter, Pelech, Kennedy and Irwin."

How are we supposed to keep things straight with this kind of information being released? I don't blame Pollak since capgeek numbers were not up when he tweeted that, and the Sharks had Irwin on the QO list.
