I believe you're wrong about OKT. There's a reason why Homer signed him in the first place. He's a big guy who brings that physical play to the blueline, and he's still the only defenseman who can do that next to Pronger. The players you mention are not even close to the physical stuff.

Homer wants some toughness back there, and he's not gonna get it by letting go of Tolly...instead he'll supply a rival team, there are not too many physical defensemen available.

Tolly's had a lot of bad luck this season, only played 10 games. He's not really been able to show what he can do yet, and Laviolette doesn't even know him except from practice. Give the guy a chance.
