I'm not so sure I like him as being high enough quality here, though, so even if you added him, I'd probably be shopping for another combination elsewhere.
I'm not sure why, but McBain can sometimes get a bad rap on these boards. Yeah, he sat out the first two games, but I really don't think that was a reflection on him. Sanguinetti was playing really well during the lock out in the AHL, management wanted to see him with the big club. Since started playing, McBain has looked really solid. I would hate to deal him AND Murphy, but I might consider it - NOT with the 1st rounder, though. A package of Murphy, McBain and Boychuk is pretty hefty, imo..
