D are worth more straight up then forwards. I think GMDM will be patient, because he knows at the end of the day, somebody will be desperate at the deadline or the summer, to dump a forward, and we can get him without moving Yandle. I think it will be more likely that we move say Stone, Runblad and a pick for a first line star forward from an under achieving team looking for assets to rebuild. All teams are giddy right now, but that will change quickly once all these high powered, potential teams, like Edmonton, loose 6 to 4 every night, because they have no defense. Then the phone rings for D men looking to build a solid foundation like Tip and GMDM have in today's NHL.
Gotta view it as a game of poker. Our biggest question is what asset or assets would fit into this Dave Tippett led team.
