Matheson has mentioned the Rangers strong chances in Schultz since early April.
It is believed that Schultz wants to be guaranteed a spot on the NHL roster to start the season.

Adam Rotter: It certainly doesn’t hurt the Rangers that they have Stepan and McDonagh, but they aren’t the only team that has former teammates of his. Detroit has Brendan Smith and Toronto has Jake Gardiner. Craig Smith is in Nashville and Blake Geoffrion is in Montreal. The money is going to be the same anywhere, so it will be up to Schultz to decide which situation he wants to put himself in.
