As for trades I think Labardo is there best trade commodity as he is the only one in eligible to return next year and a contending team would love him. I think if this team adds another depth defence man they can be very good. Since Mcdavid and dansk left there defence has been pretty good it's looked like this.

Abraham - Pelech
McDowell - Donnay
Kuleshov - Raddysh

If they can add a 94 at the deadline and a euro damn in the coming import draft to replace mules hoc then this defence will be steady next season no if ands or buts.
I agree, Raine would help this year but next year could create an OA issue. I want Erie to trade for DeAngelo from Sarnia but he may cost to much. He wants out and he has potential to be a top 2 pairing d-man. I will also say that Kuleshov has played better the last few weeks, he still has some bad turnovers but defensively he has improved.
