Would you be upset about that? I'd be totally fine to bank him as a 2nd pairing Dman. Lots of dmen on the 2nd pairing that are awesome.

I think you're overrating because of draft position. Couturier is easily the more valuable piece.

Also, the face palms are really ****ing dumb when what I said was completely true. So instead of being an ******* when someone says something about one of your players that you don't like how about fact checking or asking where I read that instead of responding like some thoughtless moron who has nothing to contribute but some stupid emoticon. Thanks.
Those rankings are total ****. Should have picked a better source.

Coots is great, but doesn't fill an organizational need. We have Nelson and/or Strome to hopefully push Nielsen down to 3C.

We have plenty of guys like Talbot, we're not lacking character or grit in our bottom 6.

Meszaros is a UFA at the end of this season who we likely won't resign at the price tag he's accustomed to. Too many prospects knocking on/down the door (Donovan CDH, Griff and thats only wave 1)

And I don't know who Manning is so he's not enough to give up salary controlled Okposo and Griff.

Value in a vacuum? Not bad. From an Isles POV, doesn't make sense.

If you still had JVR.... then we'd be interested.
