A fair critique, obviously as to our top pair buh-bye.
But while Martinez+Olsen able to step in right away with McIlrath as stay at home believed to be available this year also, that, which is helped by moving McDonagh, MDZ + Stralman up, helps add to our middle and lower D and depth. And Postma can't hurt, might surprise.
Obviously, I totally agree that if you focus ONLY on D, this proposal is a loser. But if you are open minded and look at it as I request, on balance, the surrender of our top D pair + Stepan + 2 medium prospects = Kane, a talent on order with McDonagh/Kreider, which is what my critiques need acknowledge.
