So why should Dallas take this Bartulis character who likely would be in 3rd paring D man in a couple years for an already established forward who has a very favorable contract?
I've said I don't like this proposal, it's a pretty bad one.
But you indicated that the Stars' D is better than the Flyers', that's what I wanted to criticize, not the fact that Neal is worth way more.

I would use the fact that no Stars Dman would crack the Flyers top5.
