To get a current #1 Dman you will need to give up much more than Laughtn.
In that mold assuming Stralman is resigned.

To NYR: Laughton + 2nd
To PHI: Skjei + Lindberg

Lots of second pairing guys make around $4-5 million and #4 defensemen aren't #1 or #2 in ice time on a playoff team like MacDonald was.

Exactly.

And by a lot, it means Voracek + if you are talking about a true #1 like Prongs.

LMAO Laughton doesn't come within the realm of #1 d-man.

So, what significant piece are you adding to get that #1 Dman? Laughton alone doesn't even get a GM to pick up the phone.

Laughton is our only forward prospect with top first or second line potential. We are not getting anyone close to a #1 d-man for him, so why should be trade him.

This is true, unless they were on a bargain hometown discount. A few years ago.

Yes, but no way any GM does that..

Laughton hasn't proven anything therefore he won't get you a #1 D.

A legit 27 year-old #1 defenseman on the UFA market today would garner a contract at 8 or 9 mill a year easily, maybe even 10. Hell, such a player could become the highest paid player in the sport given the right set of circumstances.

Switch out Laughton for Couturier (as a base) and you might have a conversation.

Couts++ is probably what it would take to land a #1D.

I think we have determined that Laughton's value is not a #1D.

Closed.
