We don't need to gut the forward group's defensive play to do it, either.
you also have to consider asset allocation. How much are you going to pay Coots to be a third line center? Will he reach his potential as a 3rd line center.

I am not saying make a Sharp type trade but if you fill a position of need on d and fill in for coots with a smaller drop off in Laughton then it only makes sense.

I like Edler and Yandle but I would like to get a better 2 way dman for Coots even of it means not getting as much of an offensive dman.
