Last June before the draft,Gorton and Clark had a video chat with Jim Cerny. The topic was using #15 on a D. Gorton and Clark said they would take a D with #15 because they could move one of their D in a trade. They know which teams like their D.
Seems complicated though, no? Our left D consists of Staal/MDZ/McDonagh.... Wouldn't make any sense to move Del Zotto in an effort to add offense to the blue line by signing Schultz.... McDonagh's value is sky high due to his rising stock, high potential, and young age + inexpensive cap hit. Staal might seem like the most logical choice to shop on paper, but he's also an assistant captain and important guy in the locker room, what kind of message might that send to the team if they ship him out? Not sure.
