Any trade for me would require a guy who is SOLID playing D. Even Ranger fans admit that MDZ is 'average' defensively. So essentially, we're getting another Liles unless this guy steps up his defensive awareness over the next couple of years (easier said than done). That's not the right kind of return for RoR. I believe that we need to make a swap for a good player and a good prospect that our scouts believe could have a significant impact on this club in the near future...by my estimation, that's Trouba.
People keep freaking out, thinking the value is out of whack but just because
value Trouba extremely highly, it doesn't mean he's at the very top of everyone's list:
49th League Wide
21st League Wide
46th League Wide
He did play very, very well at the WJC and a few of these lists were compiled before that time but that's all I could find. Still, I don't think a very good tournament would rocket him up these standings into the top 10.
Here's #26-50 from 3 years ago:
Kind of hit or miss...
