Lundin replaces Lee/Gilroy (I'd make that change 10/10 times)

Wiercioch replaces Cowen (because of injury. Only thing we have to "worry" about right now)

Borowiecki/Gryba replaces Carkner (less fighting ability but more mobility)

I'm going with Mark Metal

Of course... Most trades are win/win or loss/loss anyway... Only on HF, fans are so desperate to find a winner and/or a loser
I just don't see Wiercioch replacing Cowens skill set. Boro/Gryba more replace Cowen and to some extent Carkner. Wiercioch is more Lee/Gilroy Kuba.
