Justin Schultz for 2012-13
So there's been quite a stir caused by his early success in the AHL. A lot of talk in the keeper forum forecasting anywhere from 25-50 points in his rookie season (pro-rated to 82 games). Maybe this is a bad time for an unbiased opinion, but where would he rank solely for this season compared to players like OEL and Stefan Elliott? I've currently got OEL as my 7th defenseman in a 10 team league that counts H and BS in addition to the "regular" 6 categories, and Schultz is sitting there on the FA list screaming to be added. He's got the potential to put up big numbers, but then again, so does OEL to some extent, with a bit more in the hits department to boot. How much weight do we put on his ridiculous start in the AHL??
