Teams that trade their #5 and do well generally have a legitimate top pairing - the Ducks have a bunch of overachievers and old men. What happens if Souray falls off after 20 games like he did in Dallas? What happens if/when another defenseman gets injured? At this point I believe Fowler plays when he actually plays, and his conditioning will be pretty poor for a while.
If Souray or any of the other top four guys bomb then the team is screwed regardless. It's not as if Sbisa, playing as he is, steps in and saves the day.
