DeAngelo is a year younger than Pelech, is US born and is a flashy offensive dman so would be attractive to Erie. DeAngelo may posess better offensive skill, but Pelech would be a lot more dependable defensively while still being able to make a good first pass and contribute offensively.
I am personally expecting Galchenyuk to be sent back to Sarnia after he does a 9 game stint with Montreal. Unless Montreal feels he can be a key player in getting them into the playoffs, they would rather see him have a playoff run in the O. It's way too early to predict, but in looking at potential matchups based on the standings, if the sting have their current lineup are very probable to make it to round 2 and with an addition to the blueline (also pending goaltender health) could very well make it to round 3 and that is honestly the first time I can say that with a shred of confidence, last season I definately didn't feel this way even with all the talent they had.
Erie is not going to deal Adam Pelech. To be honest I think pelech for deangelo is a horrible trade for Erie. Pelech is absolutely vital and to trade him for a player with some attitude, and less proven play would be senseless for Erie. With that being said I like the idea of Erie getting deangelo but not for pelech. Doubtful Erie trades for him anyway though
