Polak is a good defenseman, but when you're playing behind Shattenkirk and Pietrangelo, you're not going to get many minutes if you can't play the left side (if he could, he'd be playing 1st pair with Pietrangelo).
I think something like Polak + D'Agostini for Weber + Polak could work. Weber could eat up the 14-16 minutes a game on the 3rd pairing and they get a 2nd line C or at least a 3rd line C to replace Schwartz.
MTL gets Polak who would be a lot better chewing up 20 minutes a game than Emelin. And we would get D'Agostini, who is a much better two way player now, who can play on the wing in our Top-9.
