That's so wrong.
He's well on his way to being that sort of player...more like a Staal, who also fits that mold, but probably even better defensively.

Edit: Make no mistake, this trade doesn't make us real contenders. We would go from a 3 line scoring threat to a 2 line scoring threat. That isn't enough to win a Cup, and I'm not about to assume Laughton is going to change that. So that's why I'm hesitant to pick either way. I don't think this is nearly as cut and dry as everyone makes it out to be. I'm not saying "absolutely don't do it," but I'm sure as hell not going to say "absolutely do it" either.

There's also the contract issues to consider, as Curufinwe has mentioned, and I think it's unwise to just bank on CBA changes.
