To me, it just looks more like we're moving Amart so, VV can play than acquiring an asset that we truly need.
Where and who are all these difference making offensive bottom 6'ers you're envisioning? We don't have any youthful bottom 6 right wingers outside of maybe Lewis everyone else is moreso than not a top 6 or bust player. I can't think of very many third lines out there that scream offense to anyone. In the end, he improves the right wing depth and has the youth to grow with the core, especially given the fact that everyone has been screaming over the third line right wing position this entire season thus far. Clifford and Palmieri are solid third line wingers. I agree though that Stoll is the one that doesn't really fit on the third well all too well. No knock on him, he just isn't a good mix for Clifford and the role in my opinion.

Gagne-Kopitar-Williams
Loktionov-Richards-Brown
Clifford-Stoll-Palmieri
Moreau-Fraser-Lewis

Looks solid and a much better lineup than we've had thus far.
