Makes an equally strong case vs. taking a whole FIRST.
I disagree on JT Miller. Ideally it is preferable he get more grooming, but in an emergency, I believe he can handle pro C esp. if he has speedy line mates like Hagelin, Kreider, Callahan.
However, if you go down this road, it's 1x this year, i.e., maybe Miller replaces Boyle or Stepan if high enough return/overpayment is available, but one or the other not both.
The overpay for Boyle was contained in the OP.
An example of profitably moving Stepan would be, if as indicated in title of another thread, 'yotes want a 2c, given their strong D, if we can juggle cap, could we send
Stepan + Yogan + Thomas + one additional prospect we agree on + Rangers 2nd 2014
Yandle + Coyotes 4th 2015
... the point being then we are thin at C, we MAY be able to eke out 1 deal, and which way we would go should depend upon what we are offered
