I agree with your 2nd statement and I think that's about where I'd put him. Unfortunately, he's about the same as Liles (or maybe even worse) defensively. Since we do have Barrie/Elliott coming up, there's no need to make this kind of trade.

A healthy Marc Staal on the other hand...would be the kind of player I'd be targetting.
I'd love Staal on this team, I think he'd do wonders for EJ's development and for stabilizing the defense in general. Plus, if he becomes expendable we could trade him to Carolina for a king's ransom
