Chara can borderline put 50+ points, PK may have 70+ points.

Just thinking of a duo PK-Tinordi in two years.

Could be as good as:
  • Orpiks-Letang
  • Chara-Sedeinberg
  • Keith-Seabrook

In 10 years with TT, we only saw Habs once trade to get a higher pick.
He wanted Tinordi and we saw how good he was with McDonagh.
Given what we saw from Tinordi, I tend to agree, he did some errors but nothing that will not be solved with another 100 games in NHL.
Tinordi was bad for about 10 minutes in the PO against Ottawa, I am sure he has learned.

As for PK, he will be 26 in two years.
Young D-men in NHL are Letang, Yandle, Franson, Schultz, Voynov, OEL, Shattenkirk, Pietrangelo and Carlson.
Need to add Karlsson and Jones to that list.
If PK continues to evolve, he may be better than all these guys.
He is actually better than most, if not all these guys.
