08:30 AM ET 06.19 | If he hits free agency, Justin Schultz may wind up being mentioned with Ryan Suter and Zach Parise. The Red Wings and every other team in the NHL can't talk publicly about Schultz, who still is part of the Ducks organization. But the Red Wings and about a dozen other teams are extremely interested. "The competition for Schultz will be every bit as intense as the competition for Suter and Parise," analyst and longtime NHL star Ray Ferraro said on TSN radio in Canada. "This kid has the potential to step in and play next year and to be a top 4 guy next year." Schultz is a 6-foot-2, 185-pound right-handed shooting defenseman whose puck-moving skills have impressed scouts.

They'll manage to work themselves into a lather by the trade dead line, like they did last year, and the year before and .....

The only guy I know who lives by - "A pitcher is worth a thousand words."

So in the case of Schultz, GM's can hear nothing, see nothing, know nothing?

He's still going to be great!...no, seriously, I don't see him helping the Red Wings much.

A shooting 'D' man. At 185 he might want to bulk up before he hits the bigs.

Babs should smile a little, They locked up Darren Helm for 4 years. Very fast player, fun to watch on the PK

The Caps should be amongst them. I was disappointed to read this moring that they put in a qualifying offer to Green. Time to cut bait.
