I can certainly understand that. You guys NEED more defenseman prospects too. In reality Laughton probably doesn't have 2nd line center upside so I can't really see the NEED for him. If you are fine with Gagner as your #2 (there seems to be some mixed feeling among Edm fans regarding this) then it's a matter or weighing whether someone like Nurse would help you long term more than a shut-down center for the 3rd line (like Laughton) would. I'm not trying to tell you guys what you SHOULD do, but this was the only scenario that made much sense to me for Edm acquiring Laughton.
