I’m not absolutely certain what we can say about Justin Schultz at this point that hasn’t been expressed already. It was obvious the Oilers had scored a terrific coup (or Schultz had done it for them) but the young man keeps piling up the points. I’m not really sure how good this guy is, but it does appear at this point that we should be prepared for something special. Can we expect a Justin Faulk-type impact. Man, that would be something!
Plenty of chatter here at the blog about Colten Teubert’s skating ability. When these things come up, I think it is fair to go back to their draft day scouting reports to re-set the conversation. Teubert hasn’t had any major leg injuries or lost a toe, so if he was a good skater on draft day that should remain true. Fair?
I think that scouting report is still representative of the player. Fair? Teubert’s spot in the NHL is blocked by men like Andy Sutton and Theo Peckham, but both of them may be short term hurdles. Suspect we’ll see more of Teubert the next time the NHL plays in anger.
