The trade was made for the future. It was expected that when you lose a defensemen at his level that you will lose some of your muster. The trade was about as good as it could possibly be for the Ducks.

Sbisa is already a top 4 defensemen. He just so happens to be playing behind last years leading defensemen in points, Lydman who was in the like top 3 in +/- in the NHL, and Fowler-Beauchemin who has been amazing to start the season.

Tell me what #5 defensemen in the NHL are better then Sbisa right now.

Sbisa: Top 4 defensemen already

Palmieri: AHL top goal scorer at age 20 (he has 8 in 6 games and someone has 9 in 10 games)

Etem: Destroying the WHL. Top goal scorer and leading in Points per game.
