We bolster an already sufficient forward line up only to weaken our weakest area in defense, however we shed a lot of salary. I wouldn't do it personally.
Thats fair, but personally I'd do it without blinking. Babchuk are Stajan are the most expendable assets Calgary has and its not even close. Filppula is a huge upgrade over Stajan, and Quincey was more than adequate in COL. I actually was shocked they traded him as he was really rounding into form and looked like a really good #3/2 tweener.
