I get that those are quick examples but if that's who we're looking at as the main piece, then that's horrible. Kulikov has been wildly inconsistent and is now having issues staying healthy the past two years. Sekera is a steady yet unspectacular #3 guy and Nikitin is going to be 27 and doesn't appear close to repeating his hot streak to end last year.

No team will give up a top flight young defenseman for a high pick. Instead, we'll be stuck taking on someone who we're hoping turns their career around, ala Kulikov. That's just as risky as an unproven prospect.
