I'll repeat myself, going forward into the future(1,2 yrs down the road)n we would be much better served moving Staal for that much needed goal scorer. Somehow(assuming Erikson and Mcilrath work out), I believe this team would survive and even thrive if that happened.
If by limited upside, you mean a top-pairing defenseman, then yes, it is rather limited.

Him making such gaffes as last night is an exception and not the rule. To even compare MCD to him is rather silly.
