Justin Schultz scored pretty big in his new deal with the Edmonton Oilers. Not only does he get a raise from his entry-level specified deal to $3.675 million, it's only a one-year deal so he's got the ability to go looking for an even bigger raise as a restricted free agent again next summer. In announcing the extension, Craig MacTavish said Schultz has "Norris Trophy potential". I'm not sure I...

The long-standing contract discussions with Justin Schultz are finally over, or should I say are back on hold for a few months after the Edmonton Oilers agreed with their top-scoring defenceman to a one-year extension.The signing, reported as imminent by the Cult of Hockey’s David Staples last night, was confirmed by the club this morning. As usual the club gave no contract terms, but the ever-reliable Bob McKenzie reports a base rate of $3.675 MM. That’s a hair below the top end of the bonus-laden two-year pact he signed as an unrestricted free agent in 2012. The new deal is guaranteed money, no bonuses allowed. To this observer it seems player-friendly, a little surprising give
