If BB shows he can handle the additional minutes during this road trip, then possibly the need might be to acquire a single forward, like Iggy. However, if things don't pan out, then we might need to get two forwards, which may limit our cap capability to secure Iggy plus 1. If Beau plays well, then it may be a forward and a bigger experienced crease cleaner, like Murray.
There's a big difference between the two. One is a consistent 20g+ guy. The other is very very inconsistent. A couple 25g seasons and multiple <15g seasons. I'll take Seto long before him. The main difference will be the cost to acquire them.
