I'm not too high on dealing Byfuglien. We're all acting like Trouba is a bonafide 100% sure player for the top 4. He looks like it and we all hope he is, but the fact of the matter is none of us know for sure.

That coupled with the fact Bogosian has shown he can play the left side shows we effectively have our top 4 D already, regardless of handedness. So instead of searching for that top 4 left-handed D we actually already have a guy who can play that spot.

Plus while we're all searching for the perfect RW we again already have a good one in Bryan Little. If Scheifele can develop to take over the center job we literally have all the pieces we need, all we really need is time.

I'd rather sit with what we have instead of taking value for Byfuglien. If Philly wants to overpay that's fine, but I'd want more than Voracek or Simmonds, even if a first was involved.
