We got the best of the 4th liner.
We got a polyvalent physical lower-pairing Defenseman.

The sort of things that, by themselves, aren't incredible. But they are the parts you need to make the whole bigger than the sum.

Last year, we were smaller than the sum of our parts, because we were missing some critical elements.
Yawn, it would have taken an idiot to not sign Price. I think the same thing about PK.
