Actually, Krajicek is bigger by two inches, and was a far better defender. When the Canucks got him there was similar hype to Gardiner, but he had absolutely no physical element to his game and once the opposition began to exploit that he became more and more of a fringe player. If we are going to base a deal around a young player for Lou it just has to be a better player than him.

Also more to the point, we don't need a lefty, we are too deep on that side as it is considering that Connaughton looks ready to start getting some NHL minutes.
