Hell, even if you don't end up moving Gagner after you acquire Berglund, having RNH, Gagner and Berglund down the middle looks a hell of a lot better than what we have now plus a lotto ticket in whoever we pick at 7.
At the same time you could say having a guy like Darnell Nurse stepping into the line-up in two years looks a lot better than Berglund walking as a UFA in two years.
I think MacT is going to have to be pretty careful. He needs to improve the team drastically, but he can't go into "win-now mode" and give up too many futures.
I don't think the team is at a point where they should be making a move like 7OV for Berglund just yet. If Berglund does walk when he becomes a UFA, you might only get one play-offs out of him. Maybe none at all.
It just seems a little too desperate to me.
