I'm not insinuating that we live and die by Parros, just that having someone who could intimidate the other team, throw some huge hits, and be a legitimate deterrent from taking liberties with our players would be nice. Parros isn't a deterrent to most players because they would never fight him. I mean he's still nice to have I guess but a top middleweight would have been a much better acquisition.

It's dumb of us to give guys up who have shown they have at least some offensive talent, especially when we're bereft of any ability to score, period.
Idk, from my viewings of Kostka in the AHL, he was mostly a sieve and he was one of the D that always let Markstrom down. Toronto's defense isn't anything to talk about so I wouldn't really be that impressed. No doubt he has offensive ability, but I think it was best we let him go.
