Think of it like this:
trading Gio = returning substantial assets (ie. Rattie, Cole).
sign Carle/Wideman (to replace Gio) ==> give no assets up in the process.
Even if we threw 5 million at either of those guys (which is an overpayment IMO), the extra 500k is worth it because we have added Rattie and Cole to our organization.
Gio is a character guy and he would be missed, but as much as I love him some of what he does can be replaced thru FA. We will not be signing Suter, so we would not be able to replace Bouwmeester via FA this offseason as he is a top pairing dman.
As of now our top 6 looks like this:
By moving Gio and signing Carle it could look like this:
Plus the thought of having Leach and Ramage on the way in a couple of years isn't to bad either.
Neither of those top 6s look good if we plan on making a run at the playoffs again. Our top six defence win have to improve if feaster wants this to be a playoff team.
