I kept Staal and Erixon.
The core of the D has been maintained, we'll get enough out of V-tank, Parlett and the replacements..
I paid a high price, but I got us Hall and Paajarvi at minimum, also Tyler Pitlick.
That is really what this boils down to, a judgment call, of if dramatically improving our Fs with a custom addition of 2 All Star calibre LWs is worth the substantial but lesser price in Ds.
I say it is.
Go look at what having a star-packed offense and a bleh defense has gotten TB and Wash. Defense wins championships. I don't understand how you can think we can get by with an AHL caliber defense. Or that Lundqvist would even want to stay with us if we hung him out to dry like that.
