I was thinking the same thing, the 2nd round pick could be taken out. Thanks for the input.

My logic is:

Clark + 1/4 Downie = Jackman (blocks shots, good defensively and can play on the 2nd pairing with Gilroy...also faster than Clark)

Purcell + 3/4 Downie = Stewart (more consistent than either Purcell or Downie, brings similar grit as Downie but has more size...has loads of skill and would complement Stamkos and MSL well)

Would the trade without the 2nd rounder work better? Both Stewart and Downie are RFA's, and this would give us the chance to eventually call up Ashton.
