Byfuglien is a very good, and unique player. I'd like to add him at the right price, but trading Staal for him, or Girardi for him, makes this team weaker, IMO. The old dig one hole to fill another bit. He's great offensively, brings a physical presence, but he's an average defender and has issues with consistency.
I agree with you. Just continuing the conversation
