1:12PM: Darren Dreger writes at TSN that the Rangers will show considerable interest in Schultz.
11:45AM: At CBC, Elliotte Friedman writes that Justin Schultz will have a lot of options to consider when he becomes a free agent, and says that the Rangers shouldn’t be overlooked as one of those options.
He says that having two former teammates, Derek Stepan and Ryan McDonagh along with the Rangers not being shy about putting college players into important roles could help them.
Adam Rotter: Stepan, McDonagh, Chris Kreider and Carl Hagelin all had big roles for the Rangers this season and in the playoffs. Going back a couple of years, Matt Gilroy came straight out of college and played with the team. I think that if Schultz signs he will get every opportunity to make the team and be a focus on the PP.
