I'd move Merrill in a heartbeat if he can be packaged for a top #6 forward.

We have no offensive depth whatsoever. We are damn lucky that our 3rd (4th line) is picking up the slack cause our top #6 is no where to be found.

Merrill might turn out to be a solid d-men but if we can land a solid forward whitout crushing our depth on defence, wich wouldn't be the case at all, I'd pull the trigger on something worth while.

I'm still not sold that John Merrill will be the d-men most of you expects him to be. At the NHL level, the real difference between being a "ok" player and real good player is basically what's between your ears. At that level, everyone has the skills but what seperates players is the mental aspect of the game and Merrill has shown us, so far at least, that he's a bit of a headcase.

I guess we'll have to wait and see.
