Why acquire a top level #1C and then trade for a prospect who struggled to survive in the NHL last season in Gudbranson who probably will top out as a #2-3 guy.
Your third point doesn't make sense either. Holtby is less proven than Dubnyk IMO. And his top potential is very questionable.
Hopkins is a first line center here because we've finished last 3 yrs running. Put him in the Bruins lineup, where would he be? He's a first line center here because there's no competition at that position. He needs a few yrs before we start comparing him to a Joe Sakic type.
Dubnyk, blah, he couldn't even stop the puck with regularity when it didn't matter. How is it going to be any different when the Oilers are expected to win?
