Clifford may not be a sexy player either but those guys are hard to come by and have value beyond the scoresheet. The first will be a late pick but that's the nature of trading to a contender.

I wasn't crazy about it at first because I think we desperately need to upgrade our scoring and this deal doesn't really help that, but all things considered, it's not a bad package at all.
...I love Kyle Clifford, but Andrei Markov is one of the premier PPQB's in the League and in LA, Tyler Toffoli is unfortunately stuck behind a plethora of other RWers...the Habs might have to throw in a small something-or-other to make it happen, but I believe we can get Toffoli for Markov due to the certainly doesn't hurt to try, at least...
