2.) His 40 points

then both of them can be replaced by trading for RoR, and finding another reliable top4 defensive defensemen. The latter being the harder part.

He doesn't help this teams transition game, or their PP, so he's not really a true PMD here, imo. Maybe he can be elsewhere. If they keep DZ I want him to excel at all areas a PMD should.
Thats the entire point though.

People are ready to put their faith into Barrie? Are you kidding me? A 22 year old defenseman coming off a 40+ point +20 season isnt the right answer for the blueline all of a sudden. Its really unbelievable.
