I think whether A-Mac is a second or third defense pairing is besides the point. The question is how much better this team is when he is playing in the third pair in the future because others have passed him on the depth chart.

I certainly see him as a trade chip down the line when we are looking for that last piece. Certainly he could be packaged in a deal for a goalie if Nilsson and Poulin do not pan out. Do we really see him on this team four years from now? If so, we really wasted a lot of picks on defensemen that didn't pan out.

Would we not want to see some sort of combo like this four years from now?

Hamonic - CDH
Reinhart - Donovan
Pelech - Mayfield
Pedan - Pokka - Russo
