Lets weaken our defence with a great contributor in Tanev to fix something else
with players whom are a big giant unknown guess that very well may not fix that something else.
Tanev and Booth our the teams only trade bait that are tradeable and don't have NTC's.
Our defense is our strength right now, the 3rd line is in shambles, Matthias as said ad nauseam would solidify it.
He's still young, big/lanky has a solid two way game, room for improvement yet experienced enough to contribute to a Cup run right now.
Matthias is probably being sought after by more than a few teams I bet and Tanev is what it could take to land him.

Those players in Florida know what it takes to win
Agreed those Florida players in the right situation could help any team, like Horton and Campbell did in Boston when they helped the Bruins win the cup. Can't just judge the Florida deals on Booth/Ballard.

Let's face it Kassian ain't working. We need help now in the top 6.
I like this move, lets hope Kane demands a trade out of Winnipeg! Kassian + Tanev + pick should suffice imesho.
