Same with McDonagh. Staal, MDZ, Valentenko should be our top three LD for years to come. If you move McD to the right side, and can make it work, sure, but I think he's a player a team like Dallas or Ottawa would covet if they trade a Richards or a Spezza. Both need blueline help.
When any of the prospects you mention show they can play at the level Dubinsky is playing at right now, you may have a point about moving Dubinsky making sense. And, why should be Valentenko be ranked over McDonagh? Nothing I saw in pre-season suggested that.
