Arguable if he's *better* than Domi, but Strome might've been someone as well. He's an RFA.
Was also thinking about the Nashville centres but that doesn't make much sense for either side.
Darren said it like the C was definitely better than Domi. I don’t think that he would have said they were better if it were Johnson or Strome.
I’m guessing it’s someone that we didn’t know was available, like Sean Monahan (right age, right position). Not that Calgary would want to do that, but they could be looking for a shakeup, and they did trade for Lucic.
The only others that I could think of that are about the right age are RNH, Lindholm, or Rakell. Although RNH & Rakell have never put up 70 points, and Lindholm has only done it once, playing with Gaudreau & Monahan.
Anyone else was too old or too young, not better than Domi, or on a team that wouldn’t want to trade a C.
Anyways, no matter what, it seems like Josh Anderson has a LOT more value league-wide than I’m sure a lot of fans (myself included) would’ve thought.
