When I first heard the trade - I hated it! Thought Klein was really the solid, steady vet we needed on the D 2nd line.

After a bit more thought - I think this was a Housley play all the way because he knows MDZs offensive potential.

Getting Jones back to his natural orientation will help him focus on true pro growth - he has had some weak showings in the last couple of home games - the Stars game was definitely an improvement for him.

On balance - I think this was a good move. Not an Erat-for-Forsberg steal, but a solid move with real upside.
