Meanwhile, we only have one top 2 D man, who plays best on the right side. It doesn't make sense. It's a bad allocation of resources.
What does make sense is either: (A) trading one of the (3) top 2 left side guys for the equivalent on the right side, or (B) trading for help up front.
Luongo & Edler to NYI for Niederreiter, Hamonic, + prospect.
I can hear the howls now after an Edler trade - "We need a good young top 4 defenseman with size and skill!"
