Leddy ain't ready to be a top 4, and it only further pushes him into that role if we trade Hjammer, really weakening our defense. The only way I can live with Leddy in the top 4, is if he is paired with Suter. If not, our defense is even more ****ed.
Unless they think they saw enough of Olsen that he can replace Hjalmersson. I just really don't like a 2nd pairing of Leddy and Oduya or Oduya and Olsen.
