Poile acquired MDZ to slot in with Jones for the foreseeable future. With MDZ we get a left handed player who's young enough to still have room to grow and giving up Klein makes it possible to slide Jones right into the top 4 and develop chemistry with MDZ while he's still young, rather than acquiring someone three years from now. It's a move for the future, as was the Legwand and Erat trade. It makes total sense.

As or you proposals we have a top 10 possible top 5 pick this year, trading it for a 30+ oft injured player is counter-productive. We need to find our own forwards who can be big players for 10+ years on our own.

The Gagner trade would be a fleecing for us, but we don't need MDZ to go anywhere, especially for someone like Read.
