If I am Snow I consider trades to fill needs. We actually have good young defensive prospects on the farm, and while those you mentioned would be upgrades, would you call any of them slam dunk future first pair?

Thanks to our having bypassed Fowler for Nino (bad move, and now justified as a bad move), and having bypassed Hamilton for Strome (broke even), and having thrown all of our eggs in the deHaan basket only to have them shattered by his injury magnet of an upper body, we are in very strong need of a potential 1st pair defenseman to compliment Hamonic at some point in the near future. So that's the only thing I trade for at this point, if I am Garth.
