Well to be honest I don't believe in the benefiting from linemates thing. I have read all these things on this board:
Stamkos is only that good because of MSL
Purcell is only that good because of Stamkos and MSL
Conacher is so good because of Lecavalier, MSL, Purcell and Stamkos
MSL benefits from Stamkos firing his passes in the net
Tampa has NO lines, they change them frequently (sometimes multiple times per game), so you see this argument is irrelevant. Tampa has a great offense, from top to bottom, and we even play thompson ( a 4th line center) alongside Stamkos from time to time.
I'm okay with Ballard +X, but Purcell is worth WAY more than an injury prone 3-5th D with a way to big paycheck.
What about Ballard and Tanev for Purcell and Lee? Maybe would add a low pick if needed.
