Of course we would need Florida to be desparate for Price so who knows. Can't hurt to ask.
Bickell at 3M? His best season is 37 points (34 ESP) and he did no SH TOI this season.
And DD with 60 points in 11-12 (40 ESP) is ineffective at 3.5?

BTW, Bickell may be big but he had 5 major penalties in the last three seasons. Assuming all of these are fights...

As for Diaz, he was good enough to be top-2 during the last 4 games of the Silver winning team.
Diaz compliments very well in top-4 with Tinordi, Emelin and Subban in 2014-15.
Diaz is OK at 5'11" and 200 lbs.

BTW, getting Bickell does not mean we should get rid of either DD nor Diaz.

Are we talking about the same Markstrom?
This guy is still very young (23 years old) and was able to keep a .901 with the horrible defense of the Panthers.
I do tend to remember that very tall goalies (6'6") take longer to develop.
He did better than Theodore and Clemmensen on both save% and gpg (3.22 is clearly better than the team 3.54).
Not so bad for a 23 years old goalie.

As for MacK, you can just forget him: he is going to FLA.
Do you really think that FLA would give up their second pick?
Their top centers are Goc, Shore, Bjustad and Matthias.
