Bathory is NO Touzin, imo.

The checking+hitting difference between the two is palpable. Not to mention I would have 0 chance of retaining Bathory next season with his 81 AVG; whereas, I had a decent chance to hold onto Touzin with his 78 AVG.

At this point I mine as well just sit with my 7M for a few days and see what the FA market has after computer teams cut players anyway. Worst case scenario, I wait 3-4 weeks and Bathory's initial asking price drops 1-2M (it is 5% a week for 12 weeks, right?)

I do have a trade out that I have a sinking feeling will be accepted:

I get:
I give:

He was asking for LW's in his trade list, and he even gains a year+ of youth in the deal.

My goalie is one of the top 2 in 3.2, but his routing is <25 currently, so stacking my defense even more than it already is seems like a good investment. Not to mention my new 4th line FA LW has scored 6 goals in 6 games (all ES on the 3rd line) while filling in for injuries, so he may not deserve a demotion at this point.
