As for just a top-4 guy, just not sure anybody we'd bring in would be a clear upgrade over an improving Spurgeon, Scandella, or Brodin. Or even Stoner or Falk if one of those guys can step into a top-4 role.
Exactly. I know this boring time in the off-season makes it hard, but there is no sense moving pieces before we know what we have. This year is especially exciting because we get our first look at Brodin playing against NHL competition in an NHL rink. We get to see where Spurgeon really fits in playing with an absolute stud in Suter. We also get to see Scandella come into a season with some much needed experience. We have to see how players have grown, how pieces fit together, and how injuries shake out before we can even begin to think about trading anyone.
