If he struggles a few months in, Carolina needs to do something about 3C, since I'd imagine it wouldn't look to good if this team, after the money that was spent, and the players that were signed, missed the playoffs. With Frolik, Carolina can add a solid player with just enough flash to be interesting, who could centre a solid Tlusty//Frolik//LaRose 3rd line.
This trade for Chicago frees up an additional 2.33m to a team that only has 7.54m left (according to capgeek) and gives them some flexibility throughout the season and a decent trade chip come deadline day (safe to assume the pick will be in the low to mid 20s)
Makes zero sense to me, as I'm not following your logic.
You willingly overpay for a guy to fill the 3C role whose forte is not at center and whose strength is not defense to center the de facto checking line?
No thanks and a big one at that.
