I don't know why you want to trade picks and prospects that have top pairing potential for #3 d-men. Ference was the #3 guy on a cup winning team Petry would be a #3 guy on many good teams. We have lots of guys who can play a 2nd pairing role, we dont need that anymore. We need studs back there.
I'm not trading Nurse or our potential Ekblad pick for anything less than that
okay fair enough, i get your point for sure.... totally understandable.... my point is: are you willing to wait 3-4 years for nurse or ekblad to become a 1st pairing guy? (if they ever get there) i'm not, i guess that is the difference
