So logically, where in the world is the sense in Toronto making anywhere near this type of a deal? Taking two problems and a prospect for a legitimate top 4 prospect who's still on his entry level is just ridiculous.
You're really underrating D'agostini here. He's a sniper and is probably best suited on the second line, but the fact is St. Louis is just loaded with depth on the wing. He's not a scratch on Toronto. He scored 20 goals on a defensive Blues team. He could do well elsewhere. MacArthur might even be a scratch on St. Louis.
