Scott Laughton for a #1 Defenceman
 
If you were Paul Holmgren or possibly Ron Hextall would you trade Scott Laughton (alone or in a package) for a #1 defencemen?

Peter Griffin 05-03-2014 04:21 PM

You'd have to add a lot to get a true #1 defenseman.

rumrokh 05-03-2014 04:21 PM

Of course you would, but from another team's perspective, he could not possibly be the main piece.

Patchey* 05-03-2014 04:22 PM

If you want a legit #1 D you would have to add a lot

ElectricSky* 05-03-2014 04:24 PM

Laughton wouldn't be the center piece in a deal for a number one d-man, unless Philly was adding multiple picks and prospects.

AFTeRMaTH* 05-03-2014 04:44 PM

Cmon man really. No way Laughton will get us a #1.

Yes, and I'd run away laughing my butt off afterwards.

Laughton isn't getting us a #1 dman. He MIGHT be able to be used to get us someone like Gormley but he's not a #1, he's a defensive prospect with high end potential.

We do not want Edler.

There's no way a deal centered around Laughton would get us a #1 d-man. We'd have to add A LOT.

:naughty: Hanowski and Jankowski for Laughton

Some say that based on the entire season not just half or three quarters of a season that
Thomas Hickey was our #1 defenseman this past season.
Deal or no deal Howie? ( just threw the Howie part in for the tv show)
He is a nice player but a # 20 overall two years ago for a #1 d-man.
Maybe for Campbell from Florida? This way some age changes teams also.

We said we wanted a #1 dman, not a 2nd pairing PP specialist

HeavyMcHitter97 05-03-2014 06:53 PM

Laughton doesn't get you anything close to a #1 Dman so it would have to be a package

Laughton wouldn't get you a #3 dman. Is this a joke???

Gabe the Babe 05-03-2014 07:09 PM

Scott Laughton will never be worth a #1 dman. Let alone before playing a single NHL game. What were you thinking lol?

Philadelphia Ducks 05-03-2014 07:12 PM

Uhhh, we'd have to add a ******** more to Laughton to get a number 1.

bossram 05-03-2014 07:12 PM

Scott Laughton is nowhere close to a #1 defenseman.

Laughton++++

or Giroux + Laughton +

TheRightWay 05-03-2014 07:15 PM

You mean Andrew MacDonald isn't the answer?

I don't think anyone has said MacDonald is a number 1. And was ever the answer to 100% fix our defense.

If you were trying to get Shea Weber, that's not crazy.

If you just said Giroux I'd agree. But then you added Laughton and another +, Weber isn't worth that, even if he is the best defenseman in the league.

Clearly Paul Holmgren thought so. Unless he thinks #4 defensemen deserve that kind of money. Either way...

He was signed to be the 2nd/3rd dman with Coburn. No one understands the mind of Homer though.

Djp 05-03-2014 07:41 PM

Laughton could get you a prospect Dman who is caught in a numbers game given who is ahead of him on The depth chart. Find a team who seems to be locked in on their top 4 Dmen the next 3-4 yrs and look for a young bottom pairing one.

To get a current #1 Dman you will need to give up much more than Laughtn.
