Stuart should stay on the bottom pairing and Clitsome is more of a bottom pairing (7th) d-man. Even Postma and Kulda should be brought into the NHL as bottom pairing guys IMO. Of course if we can find that top 4 d-man in FA, then I"m all for a Enstrom for Wilson + Watson deal.
IF Enstrom is dealt, I don't really see a defenseman coming back that can handle top 4 minutes. If that was the case, why would the other team be trading him? Ellis and / or Blum are not able to handle top 4 minutes either, so getting either one of them doesn't solve that problem any better than getting someone like Watson.

Plus, Ellis especially doesn't look like the player the Jets are trying to acquire if our last two drafts are any indication.

I think if Entrom is dealt, that Chevy would need to make a secondary move(s) to replace his minutes.

Pretty much why I would want him as well.

It appears from the last two drafts that the Jets are trying to get bigger, and tougher to play against.
