If you look at what they have in terms of Ds, I think it was more of a case of too many puck moving guys and not enough grit, they did traded him for Rivet.

Are they going to trade Vlasic, Ehrhoff or Carle away? He was seen as the least talented of the group(perfectly fine observation) but he was never really about talent anyway. I think hes a good top 4 D, for the price we will pay for him, a very important consideration with Dandenault and Bouillon still on the payroll at around 2m per and the objective of adding a superstar upfront for big dollars while giving big raises to Komo, Plecky and Higgins.
