They scored enough down the stretch that I don't believe they should hang onto Leopold for the mere fact that he'll give you ten goals per season. I think we have enough mobile defensemen--Myers, Ehrhoff, Sekera, and Sulzer if we re-sign him--to withstand the loss of Leo, and if we're dedicated to increasing our goal output we should be looking at bolstering our forward corps.

If they can get an early-2nd and a decent prospect for him pre-July 1, I say do it.
And I'd rather hold onto Leopold if there isn't a mobile D upgrade as you likely could get the 2nd and a decent prospect at the trade deadline when veteran defensemen usually go for a premium.
