I don't like that idea much at all. It might make sense value-wise if we end up 6-10, but I don't think it improves our team in the long-run.

The way I see it, we're either taking a stud young defenseman, who at least gives us a potential #1, and assuming that some of the current pieces will rebound next year, or taking a potential franchise forward (MacKinnon, Drouin, etc.), which might make one of our current young forwards expendable in a trade for a potential top-pairing defenseman.

Wait for Ryan to be a UFA. By that point, we'll have some money off the books and, assuming our younger guys continue to progress, be in a better position to compete than we are right now.

I'd instantly do that, which tells me it is awful for Anaheim.

Ryan > Hartnell
Sbisa = Read

Hartnell is older, while Read is UFA after next season. I can't see any reason for them to do that.
