He's a younger N.Schultz.
I can't express how much I disagree with you. Josi is a future top pairing Dman, and is a solid #2/3 guy right now. The reason he is expendable has nothing to do with him and everything to do with the fact that we now have Weber and Jones to play on our top pairing, with Klein and Ekholm looking great as a 2nd pairing. In a perfect world, we would keep them all, but we have a surplus at defense and a weakness at forward. So we should make a trade. Josi is "expendable" because he is not the face of the franchise (Weber) or cheaply on an ELC (Jones). Not cause he is a bad player.

He is one of my favorite players, and I fully believe he has #1D potential. Not sure if he will reach it, but he has that potential.

Not a chance, we can do far better than Gagner. Rather just keep Josi.

I totally understand not wanting to deal Eberle for him, he's a great player, which is why I want him. Don't under-rate Josi though.
