As a third liner he'd be over 1 mil, which is how much we could probably get a solid vet 3rd liner for, like Malhotra if he sticks around. If we could trade him for a solid defenseman, I wouldn't be against it. I used to think we were killing our depth but as it is we are absolutely getting steals with seventh rounders, and ANY pick we make next draft will start to help us right when we begin our rebuild anyway so IMO we can afford to trade em for help now while a cup is in our sights.
White's pretty good though, the lil I've seen of him. He would easily be top 4 on our team IMO, he's pretty solid defensively.
