That's why I choose to work off the logic behind it.
The structure suggests a C,W and D, so I naturally went with another D to replace Gardiner.
That's fair, and it's possible, even likely a deal includes a defenseman, but there's no need to kill yourself trying to fit one in somehow. I don't think adding a Dman is a priority at this point.
Not to mention ifwe try to go after 4 different pieces, it reduces the individual quality that we get, whereas I'd rather focus on 2-3 pieces of higher quality.
Ex. Lupul + cond 1st or Kulemin + Kadri + cond 1st
Frattin, Percy, Colborne, cond 1st
I don't want Lupul as the base. Mostly because I think he works best as a LWer, and we have plenty of those.
Now, this may be speculation on my part, but Kesler's best seasons have all been while playing with a natural right-shooting player(Sundin and Samuelsson). Lupul is a natural RW, and I think he'd be a good fit as the playmaker on our 2nd line.
Now it may be my turn to be reading too much into it, but who knows?
