Fixing the D new 4th line

Team Explanation
I liked sceviour. Don't know why he wasn't playing over Turris. Turris is pretty useless sadly and I don't think that's changing. The 3rd line has been a wonder to watch, but the 4th line has been more of the same sadly. McLeod was good but isn't enough of his own player to drag around Turris all day. I'd say try benson on 4LW if he doesn't end up traded.

Keith has been better than anticipated but he is not an ideal 2LD, I can live with him on the bottom pair, and to an extent Ceci too. Those cap hits still holding us back a lil

Barrie is awful for the top pair. Bouchard should've been playing there since the beginning. Ideally I think we move him out either in a deal for a defensive 2RD, or trade him for assets to flip for a 2RD

Boston fans I want to hear what you think about that trade. I don't think the bruins are really in need of a 2RD, but Barrie is an upgrade on what they've got there. He's pretty solid I just don't think he fits the oilers needs right now. Benson too could probably replace what DeBrusk brought last year (which wasn't much)

We're 3-0 to start the season and we're not that desperate. Besides, Dylan Strome is on the market... better target.

Sorry, not sorry.

Lol we’re not trading Zach Whitecloud to a division rival for a late second.

Devon toews went to Colorado for 2 2nds and he was twice as good as Whitecloud was my thinking, I don’t think Vegas would look to trade him anyways. He just symbolizes a defensive 2RD

Most fans I talk to don’t want to do it at all but you’d be surprised at what GMs will give up for D men with high perceived value

They couldn’t afford Toews. I do think he’s better, but that also wasnt a division foe….

Boston doesn’t seem to like that style of defensemen. I think his perceived value to them would be negative
