I don't see them getting the RH PMD power play guy they want and need. So to me it boils down to Allen or Stralman. McIlrath will probably not be ready yet forcing Klein to move up and take those minutes if they want to let Wrath get sheltered 3rd pairing ice time. This not an ideal scenario. Allen could play the second pair minutes and adjust on the fly next year well before Wrath. If management believes the former to be true then trading Stralman is the smart move, Allen would be cheaper as well next year.
Personally I prefer they sign Stralman, and move Allen next year if he is looking like an NHL defensemen come next season, rather than gamble on him now. If Wrath is eventually knocking on the door move Klein to 7th D.
They have options. That's a good thing.
