We just differ on the value of those 2 players. Nothing personal.
Again, I respect Carlsons game. But in the playoffs Chara and Seidenberg do ok in shut down role.
I value B's depth. IMO a huge reason why they won the Cup in 2011. While Vancouver was rolling borderline 4th liners over the boards as their 3rd line, Julien responded with Kelly Peverly and Ryder.
Without Hamilton, perhaps this would be worth the gamble. But if Hamilton lives up to half his hype, I'm ok with (Chara Boychuk Seidenberg Hamilton) top 4 for the next 3 to 5 years.
