Buzz: Will Justin Schultz Want A Guaranteed Roster Spot?

In the Edmonton Journal, via PHT, David Staples quotes former Tampa Bay GM Brian Lawton as saying that the team that signs Justin Schultz will have to guarantee him a roster spot.

Lawton says, “So if you any chance to get a player like this, you’re gonna unfortunately  going to be out there on a limb in some uncomfortable positions. Because there are things you don’t want to do like guaranteeing a roster spot to a player who has not played in the league. But guess what? That is the landscape you’re dealing with. If you’re going to sit at home and say, ‘I’m not going to do that,’ that’s great. But you’re not going to get any players either.”
