Um,I think that is exactly what we did. Maye not on the Jackets but on any team with a solid top 6 Dubinsky/Arnisimov would probably be one 2nd & one third or two thirds. Hopefully they will produce for the Jackets but to think those guys have earned 1st line status is wishful thinking.
I think the trade was made to give the Jackets two pretty solid, gritty type players, a very promising D man and a #1 pick.
