Eh, I loved Shatty, but I see a similar cerebral quality to Barries game that made me fall for Cap'n Kirk. I think they'll be very close players, while Elliott still has the tools to blow both of them away. I think if we hold onto both Barrie and Elliott until at the very earliest next trade deadline they could be a great piece to put the finishing touch on our core. But there value isn't there yet, Barrie's getting there if Sacco can just leave him with Hejda, and Elliott should start getting there around the next TDL.

I don't think we make good trading partners with the jets unless it's something like Trouba with a real + added to him like Burmi. I think that ultimately we'll trade ROR in the summer to a team that can offer us an EJ partner as the centerpiece of their proposal, as long as we don't get Seth Jones. Finish next year pushing for the playoffs with:

Ginner - Dutchy - PAP
Landy - Staz - Drouin
Jones - Sgar - Downie

Kulikov - EJ
Hejda - Barrie
Wilson - Elliott
SOB

with us being able to package one of the PMDs to seriously upgrade one of the forward spots if needed.
