And then you're using one of our top-9 forwards like a scrub on the 4th line. It's not an efficient use of resources. Ideally, you want 9 top-9 forwards. Your trade would leave us w/ 11 players for 9 spots (Jagr, G, Harts, Briere, JVR, Voracek, Read, Cooter, Simmonds, Schenn, Umberger) and would leave us shorthanded on D w/ our final pairing being Gustafsson-Lilja.
It makes zero sense. If Umberger is even an upgrade over Simmonds or Read, it's a very slight one. While Lilja is a tremendous downgrade over Carle. And meanwhile, you're trading away Bob too. It's honestly really, really bad.
Dont feel like looking it up but I would imagine umberger makes quite a bit more money than simmonds . For what simmonds gives you and what umberger gives you I would rather have simmonds at this point (younger, still hasnt peaked, more versatile)
