Its not a terrible deal.
Seguin is playing wing for us and has plenty of minutes. Julien and Chia are letting him come along slowly, not giving him much pressure. I don't think I'd do that deal. Yes we're deep at center, but as soon as Krejci is gone that means either Seguin or Wheeler moves to center or we call up Arniel. I'd rather keep our centers as is. We're 8th in league scoring, so I'm fine with it.
Let me add a deal to the discussion though.
Streit (assuming he is good to go by the deadline)
Giving up a possible top 5 pick is a lot, but Streit is a great offensive dman who I think makes us a true Cup contender and who is signed beyond the offseason. Ryder can help NYI on the wing and is UFA after this season so they can continue to rebuild. Ryder and Streit's salaries are almost equal so NYI stays near the cap floor and we stay under the ceiling.
