Easily could have returned a solid 2nd line IMO
. Instead...we get someone who we don't even want anymore. Ouch.
Never understood trading Klein for a defenseman.
It depends on the second line guy, but I don't really see it unless we were adding more on to it. A Sam Gagner-type with a bad contract, sure, but a meaningful second liner? I don't know.
I would have thought that Trotz leaving might open the door to MDZ being less eager to leave, but perhaps not.
