Agreed as well. Schultz has looked good so far but let's keep the hype in check and refrain from mentioning his name in the same breath as Orr. Even to compare his all around game to Karlsson is crazy to me, Karlsson led all Dmen in takeaways last season if I'm not mistaken. Anyways, young players and especially young Dmen do not always follow a linear progression so extrapolating based on this season's stats so far is wrought with folly. As an example just look at Tyler Myers, i remember him being talked about as the next Chara in his rookie season. One must also remember that Schultz is benefiting from being in mid-season condition and form having played in the AHL for 34 games, but he also has never played what will amount to 82 games (between the AHL and the NHL if he plays all 48) in a season before and we could see him hit a wall in the latter part of this year. All that being said the kid has some great potential.
