While we do need a scoring forward this move will also improve our offense because you can't score if you can't get the puck out of your own zone. A puck moving lefty d-man will help a ton when it comes to getting the puck out oof our own end cleanly.
I agree! All of those people saying the sky is falling because we traded away our 2/3 line pairing RHD man are nuts! We needed a LHD man in the worst way. MDZ fits that bill! I liked KK as much as the next guy, and will still like him as a NYR but the Preds needed to make a move for a LHD men and made a good move. I still think Ellis can be packaged with someone to bring in a top 6, not top 3 but a good top 6.

Good move GMDP!
