And he is already an established top 4 Dman in this league, some would say top pairing Dman, and is only getting better and nastier by the game. You've acknowledged yourself how good he is, even right after coming back from a major injury that put him out all year. Yet you are saying he is worth less than Mac or Drouin, who are of course blue chip prospects, but are not a sure thing, and have yet to play a shift in the NHL. They could bust as easily as they could become all-stars.
Why would you trade for the 3rd overall then? None of your prospects are at the level as the top 3 in this draft. In tampa's perceptive why would they downgrade their 3rd overall pick for lesser unproven pieces?
