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.
Am I mistaken or has burmi not been primarily playing RW on the line with Kane and Antro?

Either way, provided schiefele can become top six, one of little or burmi can assume the role on the wing as both seem to be able to handle that. I think most of burmis points this season have come with him playing the wing position have theynot? or am i writing some revisionist history in my head?
