There's a reason Brookbank is the guy in the #6 spot. Everyone else on that list is a downgrade, on a blue line that can't afford to get worse. Brookbank is better for this team than any bottom six depth player we'd get for him.

Schultz and Vatanen have no impact on this decision. Moving Brookbank has an immediate impact on the team, where Schultz and Vatanen are at least a season away.
