I don't think that Tollefson and Witt are the kind of defenders that the Flames need, in particular when they trade Aucoin. Don't get me wrong, I really like what Brendan Witt brings to the table, but moving one of our veteran puck-moving defenders and replacing them with two stay-at-home-defenders does not help the Flames.
fair points. Rumours are the jackets are in the market for a right shooting power play d man, and aucoin fits the bill. (Kubina does to, but aucoin is a million dollars cheaper). They have plenty of picks and prospects, but we need a d man back to replace aucoin's minutes, and i do not think there are many on the market besides witt. Colombus is really pressed to make the playoffs, and they will probably clean out the front office if they do not make the post season this year. They are really pressed, and will probably pay dearly IMO for short term gain
