I don't think adding him to our blueline does anything but add an extra body for "depth." I don't think it changes our status as likely first-round fodder. Giving up Kindl and a 2nd, in what people say is supposed to be a deep draft seems like harsh overpayment, imo.
Completely agree. Nothing available would make us close enough to a favorite/contender for it to be worth it. Adding a guy like Hamer may help a bit, but I would rather keep Kindl and a 2nd and lose in 5 games round one than get Hamerlik and lose in game 7.

TLDR: No rentals please
