I'm not gonna bother keeping up with line combo's tonight, just focus on a few #'s like Pirate's.
Simply because we wanted Hejda. Think of that whole deal as Hejda + 2nd for Liles. Still think we got the short end of the stick, but that was the reasoning.
Our defense wouldn't be nearly as bad with him in the line up though.
Liles - EJ
Wilson - ROB
Hejda - Barrie
That looks a hell of a lot better to me. That is also why I wouldn't have been opposed to giving Matt Carle the deal he got in Tampa. He is a slightly better and younger version of Liles. Our defense wouldn't have nearly the transition problems, and Carle would only be overpaid by about 1m.
