As I said, obviously finding someone that can be an upgrade over Bozak or even Grabovski with size would be the ideal situation... but not many teams are likely to just give them away, let alone trade them for a fair package. A lot of teams will be looking at an overpayment as they are not common.
So instead of looking at depleting our roster depth and prospects depth, why not go after someone that would perhaps fit the role better as a "shut down" center, one that's big and can grind well.
His value is low, thus the value may be worth it.
Makes a lot more sense than the usual third line winger proposals.
