I really don't think he's going to trade anyone but it shows really. There was absolutely no need to move Schultz and even at best maybe in the off-season. Gilbert was not a huge priority for us with Foster here and Brodin coming in.

What we are missing is a guy like Johnsson. We just simply can't find a guy that can make a good outlet pass (not really offense but it helps) but also plays a steady, reliable game on the backend. Which Brodin should provide.

Schultz had one bad year. He wasn't that bad last year and has always been a very solid hockey player, if slightly overpaid.

Yes I use Karlsson, because he's a young hockey player and still developing. They also have better defensemen overall than us...and Karlsson is joining elite territory for offensive defensemen. (And he's a +15).

This is like the whole center issue that Minnesota has had in the past.
