So I don't mind focusing our assets a little to hard on that EJ partner and relying on FA and the draft to fill out our wings. Cause if we could get someone like say Vlasic or Edler next to EJ I'd totally give up Staz or our first and Elliott.
McGinn - Dutchy - PAP
Landy - Staz/ROR - Downie/Jones
Sgar - Malkin/ROR/Staz - Jones/Downie
Bordy - Malone/FA/Malkin - Olver
Vlasic - EJ
Hejda - Barrie
SOB - Wilson
is a team I'd totally go to war with if we got a real coach.
You're right in terms of the dynamic winger. No one seems to mention this, but yes that is what they need too in addition to help on the blueline. They have plenty of good complimentary forwards, but they need a highly talented guy to make plays happen. Right now all they basically have is Duchene in that mold.
They aren't getting this kind of player in addition to a top D though, so there's probably no need to package that 1st with Staz and Barrie IMO. Even if it is top ten protected, they aren't likely getting the right kind of return.
I do think they could potentially get a return that at worst would be equal value in terms of Barrie vs the D they brought in with a Staz+Barrie combo. I'd rather they see what they can do without that, but it's possible they don't have enough to entice another team.
