It would be definitely an upgrade. I do worry about cost.

On Rachunek - I just think he's been turning the puck over more and losing the puck in his own zone, as well as losing his man. Of course, I think Girardi's looked similar, with which I dont think anyone agrees, so I wouldn't listen to me.
I cringe when I see Rachunek on the ice, his defensive abilities are substandard and in he will be taken advantage of more and more...I've already made some posts about Girardi's failings, so I see where you are coming from..But attimes, he also looks pretty good..Consistentcy is his problem, not unexpected fro a 22 year old...But the bottom line is that a Top-6 D with Girardi, Rachunek, Malik and even Ward needs to be upgraded..
