Reading comprehension buddy. With him healthy I said we have a top 3-5 defense in the LEAGUE.

Murphy will not be a Mike Green IMO. We are in a win now mode. That is a trade you make when you are rebuilding.

With respect to Staals vision, it may never be 100% but most things aren't after injuries. Should we trade every player who ever has ever had some sort of significant injury? Also, IIRC it was said in an article that his vision will be about 90-95% of what is was.
