This was the very first thing i thought of when i saw the trade happened, just now. Like with the Palushaj/d'agostini trade, gauthier likes making deals that are built around gaining more flexibility. Kind of surprised he's still on his ELC, but i'll take your word for it.

Good trade, overall. Like many others have said, we are short on defensive d-men types in our system, so the trade makes a lot of sense.
