Set for a LONG time. Bogosian hits his prime just as Girardi starts to slow down, with Bogo becoming Staal's RH partner on the top pairing and Girardi dropping to the mid pairing where McD's speed will keep him covered for a long time. Ladd is young and could be a staple on a line with Richards. The "pack line" stays together.

We give up some assets, but we become a dangerous team for YEARS to come. Our defense would be, probably, the best young defense in the entire NHL, top to bottom. Losing Kreider is softened by drafting TJ Miller and still having Thomas, Zuccarello and Stepan.

I am not sold on the JT Miller draft pick just yet. I AM sold on Kreider though.

I understand you have to give to get.. I rather target a different asset to be honest with you. I cant see Winnipeg/Atlanta losing their Captain in the midst of a transition period from Atlanta to Winnipeg. I just dont see it. Not the CAPTAIN.

And what it would cost to get mr. Ladd... I am not thrilled with that option.
