ESPN "Experts" Rank Justin Schultz

I came across this ( this morning and thought it was interesting. ESPN asked their "experts" this week to rank the top 50 defensemen by a 1 to 10 rating.  One Oiler player managed to get on the list. 

Justin Schultz was ranked 40th (tied with
Paul Martin) by ESPN with a 6.33 rating. When you look at the list, he's in good company. Hopefully, after a decent year this season, he will move up the list to possibly the top 30, maybe even the top 20. 

I'm expecting big things out of Schultz. I guess time will tell.

Last coach they would want to play for in the NHL was John Tortorella.
40% of players would like to see a relocated team go to Canada.
Pittsburgh has the worst visitors dressing room while the Wild have the best room.
52% of the players thought that the NHL would benefit the most from more TV coverage.
Former Oiler Chris Pronger was voted the NHL's dirtiest player. No surprise there.
The Flyers have the meanest fans and the Canucks have the best fans. What, no Oilers on the list?
Do you guys agree with these choices?
