Byfuglien is an offensive d-man with below average defense, not a good fit with what we currently have. Yes he is the biggest guy in the NHL, but he is also out of shape and has little endurace. Not to mention that he would cost a lot to trade for.

Clarkson is a solid player, but no way he is worth close to the 5 mil/year that he might cost to bring in. If we want another fighter, get a big guy like Kassian or McLaren to play 35-40 games a year.

Adding size on defense will be Tinordi, if they don't want to rush him sign a 1 year guy to split time with Bouillon.
It wouldn't be so bad if our centers weren't small too, which is why I'm looking forward to having Galchenyuk-Eller as our 1-2 center punch. Eller should already be used there but for some reason Therrien just doesn't want to downgrade DD.


Byf still puts up 50ish points. For an out of shape guy, he's doing fairly well.
There's no question I would bring him here if the trading price was reasonable.
You can also change the attitude of a player.
