Scott Laughton for a #1 Defenceman

If you were Paul Holmgren or possibly Ron Hextall would you trade Scott Laughton (alone or in a package) for a #1 defencemen?

You'd have to add a lot to get a true #1 defenseman.

Of course you would, but from another team's perspective, he could not possibly be the main piece.

Laughton wouldn't be the center piece in a deal for a number one d-man, unless Philly was adding multiple picks and prospects.

Yes, and I'd run away laughing my butt off afterwards.

Laughton isn't getting us a #1 dman. He MIGHT be able to be used to get us someone like Gormley but he's not a #1, he's a defensive prospect with high end potential.

We do not want Edler.

There's no way a deal centered around Laughton would get us a #1 d-man. We'd have to add A LOT.

Some say that based on the entire season not just half or three quarters of a season that
Thomas Hickey was our #1 defenseman this past season.
Deal or no deal Howie? ( just threw the Howie part in for the tv show)
He is a nice player but a # 20 overall two years ago for a #1 d-man.
Maybe for Campbell from Florida? This way some age changes teams also.

We said we wanted a #1 dman, not a 2nd pairing PP specialist

Laughton doesn't get you anything close to a #1 Dman so it would have to be a package

Scott Laughton will never be worth a #1 dman. Let alone before playing a single NHL game. What were you thinking lol?

Scott Laughton is nowhere close to a #1 defenseman.

I don't think anyone has said MacDonald is a number 1. And was ever the answer to 100% fix our defense.

If you were trying to get Shea Weber, that's not crazy.

If you just said Giroux I'd agree. But then you added Laughton and another +, Weber isn't worth that, even if he is the best defenseman in the league.

Clearly Paul Holmgren thought so. Unless he thinks #4 defensemen deserve that kind of money. Either way...

He was signed to be the 2nd/3rd dman with Coburn. No one understands the mind of Homer though.

Laughton could get you a prospect Dman who is caught in a numbers game given who is ahead of him on The depth chart. Find a team who seems to be locked in on their top 4 Dmen the next 3-4 yrs and look for a young bottom pairing one.

To get a current #1 Dman you will need to give up much more than Laughtn.
