I realize that D-men are coming up from WBS, but who could we possibly get for a comparable cap hit to Letestu? With the way we're losing players to injury, I don't see Shero subtracting anyone at this point. Vitale, Park and MacIntyre are all on 2-way deals, as is Jeffrey for this year so as players come back into the line-up those four can be sent down (or back up) as needed.

I realize Letestu hasn't had a great start this year, but surely he's worth more than a fourth round pick?
Imo, Adams, Asham, Park, Vitale, Jeffrey is our depth on the 4th line and in that order. With a fully healthy roster and a trade for a RW, Dupuis will take another spot on the 4th line.

It'll be interesting how DB balances the 4th line with a need for a gritty guy like Asham, a RHS f/o ace like Vitale/Park, Adams' PKing and manlove from DB and a guy like Jeffrey who could have serious upside if given another shot in the top 9.

I don't see Shero bringing a roster player back in a trade with Letestu. We already have too many choices on our 4th line. Maybe another depth D-man who's on a 2 way and waiver ineligible.
