08:27 AM ET 06.25 | Yes, there may be a bidding war every bit as heated for the headliners as for Justin Schultz. It's been said the native of West Kelowna, B.C., would like to play closer to home or with former Wisconsin teammates. He reportedly also wants guaranteed playing time on a NHL roster. That would put the Maple Leafs in the running as Toronto rearguard Jake Gardiner, acquired from Anaheim along with forward Joffrey Lupul for defenceman Francois Beauchemin in February 2011, was Schultz's defence partner at Wisconsin. Vancouver, Edmonton, Detroit, Chicago and the New York Rangers (forward Derek Stepan and defenceman Ryan McDonagh are former Badgers teammates) appear to be the favourites.

The only way he goes to TO is if he loses his right mind. And if that happens he deserves a left hook.

He wore that same expression on NHL draft night.

I pray they never fire Burke in Toronto. He's like a red headed, step child with cauliflower ears, pigeon toes, knock knees, cross eyes, and tooth bucked, What would we ever do without our silver backed neandrathal? Talk about Argos perhaps?

he certainly has enough of it on the ice

I predict an Edmonton signing.

He certainly makes a lot of demands - play closer to home, play with Wisconsin teammates, guaranteed roster spot. What next, only green M&Ms in his locker after games?

He reportedly also wants guaranteed playing time on a NHL roster.
======================================
Guaranteed?
--------------------------
How many points is HE going to guarantee with said ice-time I wonder?

Guaranteed?....This really displays the sheer arrogance of these kids these days.

He'll forget all that nonsense once somebody shows him the money.

So, what you are saying is once he gets his contract he'll know nothing and he'll see nothing?

That could happen. I think Edmonton would have taken a defensman at number 1 if they didn't think they had good shot at getting Schultz and if he wants lots of ice time he would get it in Edmonton.
