Our top 9 is still outstanding and actually more balanced to play a playoff/gritty game. Our defence improves immensely with the addition of one of the best D in the game. Adding Keith is what turns us from a bottom feeder to a playoff team IMO. Not to mention we get a great goaltending prospect in Raanta.
Yuck. I'd rather trade Yakupov and Hall over Eberle any day. Eberle is a better player now and will be consistent game in game out. Even keeping Hall is a better choice because he is exactly what we need now.
