So...White was horrible here in a top 4 position this season. i'm not a fan of the trade because I would have gotten a different package for white.

Regardless...Babchuk has been good in the postion the coaches have put him in in the last 2-3 weeks. IMO sarich can play top 4 as long as he stays out of the box so that hole is filled. As long as the big 3 on the point hold the top 4 together I am happy to keep babchuk where he is.
