So a future on D of:

Letang - Despres
Gudbranson - Morrow
Niskanen - Engelland
Harrington - Bortuzzo
Gudbranson looks amazing and he's one of the few players I'd really want in a package for Staal, but Florida would have no interest in that deal. Remember: they have Nick Bjugstad, Drew Shore, J. Huberdeau, Quinten Howden and others around the corner. They are very strong at forward organizationally, and I can't see them trading Kulikov or Gudbranson under almost any circumstance.
