Yea maybe. I think if our D-core pans out how management is expecting it, he won't have a spot.

Goligoski-Nemeth
Oleksiak-Larsen
Dillon-FA/Bystrom/Daley

I have a feeling Bystrom might be a longer term project, maybe not coming into the league until he's 22 or so. Which would coincide with the last year or two of Trevor's contract. If all 5 of the other spots are taken, I could see Daley being moved in the final year of his contract to make room for Bystrom in the top 6.

Or maybe Dillon/Oleksiak/Goose someone will be traded before then. Impossible to say 3-4 years down the line. Someone's going to get moved before Bystrom is NHL ready though I believe.

Not sure how else that quote could be interpreted. Implies when, not if. Or maybe I'm just reading it wrong.
Nah Bystrom's definitely not a sure thing, didn't mean it like that. I was mostly agreeing with you about the logjam, and just saying I would see Trevor being moved if Bystrom actually becomes NHL ready. Assuming no other D-man is traded before then.
