My thoughts exactly. They've already got Carlson, Orlov and Jensen for the right side.

Wow that’s a lot for Schultz. More than Shattenkirk. I guess the Caps really wanted him

Too much money. He isn't the same player from 3 years ago. Not even close

This is one of those contracts (like Jack Johnson a couple years ago) that requires an explanation from the GM.

wow.......this is almost as bad as the Jack Johnson signing.

He is absolutely useless in his own end.

Schultz is still a top 4 dman! He was our best when we won the cups. Don't lose faith in him over one bad season people jeez. This is a very nice deal for both sides, although being a Penguins fan, I'm not happy that he is going to our rival.

But we will miss you Schultzy!!

Makes the cap deep on the backend, although a expensive 2 years - I think it could turn out good for the caps tho

He's still a good player but this is an overpayment IMO.

Total liability in his own end and fallen off a cliff offensively, maybe that's why? He isn't the same player he was in the Pens cup runs.

Still a good player. Struggled this past year but I would be voting "yes" if it were 2.5M ... 4M is too much, though, IMO.

orlov is on the left. The site lists him as a RD but hes really a LD. He can play right but his strong side is his left

Orlov is left-handed.

But still a weird move, Schultz is a puck mover and that's not what they need. I thought they'd sign Gudas type player

This is actually a good signing folks. It's LESS than what he got in Pittsburgh by 1.5 million per season. He will have a STRONG D partner to play with unlike in Pittsburgh when he got stuck with Jack Johnson (who amazingly got signed by the Rangers today - HA!!!). Justin Schultz is NOT as bad as people are saying WHEN he has a good solid D partner and on the Power Play he is very good. His agent is a pain in the butt which is why his contracts are always an issue but for a right handed shooting defensemen and only a TWO year deal I like it for the Caps. I just find it funny that as a Pittsburgh Penguin fan, Justin Schultz AND Jack Johnson are still in our Metropolitan Division. HILARIOUS!
