Schultz clearly has talent. But he has really struggled the last two seasons -- he just isnít the guy (yet anyway) to carry the blue line of an NHL team. The addition of Andrej Sekera should take off some of the pressure, but itís do-or-die time for Schultz. Heís on a one-ye...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

Schultz was a bit of a disappointment for the Oilers last season, but that came as no surprise -- the grind of an 82-game schedule drained the poor guy. He struggled alongside Andrew Ference last season, so watch for the team to try him with Nikita Nikitin both at even-strength and on the top power-play unit. And with the Oilers' wealth of offensive talent, Schultz is sure to put up points. While he's a risk as your top defender, Schultz has a decent shot at delivering top-30 numbers.

2013-14

Schultz was a gift from above last season for Edmonton. He signed with the Oilers after being unable to come to an agreement with the Ducks and immediately provided the team with an offensive presence on the blue line that they hadn't seen since Paul Coffey. Now, he did admit he hit the wall at midseason, but that will change this year now that he knows what it's like to play in the NHL. And one has to think his second season could produce 12 to 15 goals and as many as 50 points. Sweet.

2012-13

The Oilers may have drafted Nail Yakupov with the top pick in the 2012 Entry Draft, but signing Justin Schultz must have felt like they hit the lottery again. Schultz was considered by most to be the best free agent defenseman after Ryan Suter and his signing with Edmonton was a blessing for the team. He is a big, puck-moving blueliner who will be given every shot to make the team out of training camp and is their cornerstone defenseman of the future.

2011-12

Schultz will return to Wisconsin for junior year but is already one of the better defense prospects in the game. He's even a darkhorse candidate to win the Hobey Baker Award, though it's frequently difficult for a defenseman to do so.

2009-10

Schultz is another defenseman who is very offensive-minded. He has the fantastic ability to know when to join the play, but he also needs to focus more on his defensive play in his own zone
