Apparently I was not clear.

Shattenkrik is nice to have, but not an upgrade to either Girardi or Staal.
However, I am envisioning that along with Stepan, Girardi and/or Staal could either or both be moved for even more borderline elite help at F, without a D coming back.

So I am trying to figure out what you need and what we have.
We can't offer a top pair LD. Closest to that would be Del Zotto; MDZ for Shats = coke for pepsi, mostly.

A #1 C (Richards) could not be included. Stepan is also out for reason of the scenario I described, any other reasons besides. We'd be gambling on JT Miller at 2C (with Kreider + Callahan) and Yogan possibly at 3C.

However, 'center depth' might still be workable

The Black Hawks forum was split about Brian Boyle + x for Dylan Olsen + y.

Interested in Rupp and a pick?
