I still think we should keep Lydman until the deadline. His value will be the same if not higher then it is now.
Sbisa? Anyway...that's way too soft a blueline. Absolutely too soft. I'd have made some trades by this point if this is what I had to work with.

EDIT: What do you mean we wouldn't have gotten Fowler? I distinctly remember being nervous at the thought of having four OFD's in Fowler, Gardiner, Schultz, and Vatanen. Gardiner was traded after we drafted Cam.

That's just simply not true. Training camps always insist that every job is in danger. If Vatanen outplays Lydman by a far enough margin, they'll absolutely make room for him.
