Might not be a rental, but it's a short lease. Not a long term solution.

I guess the strategy is to plug him in at center and see what transpires? I don't know. When the euphoria of Regier actually making a trade subsides, I think we'll see that this trade appears more like a short term fix than a first, bold step towards winning a cup.

And I hope I'm way off base.


Could very well be that it's a bridge to Kassian and Adam being NHL top 6ers.

Have Boyes in place for next year when Kassian almost certainly won't be top 6 ready, and when Adam might only be ready for part-time callup duty.

Then, when his contract expires, we have NHL-caliber talent ready to take his place.
