For me it's not what they gave up. I just don't think Reave's is a good fit. We moved away from players that couldn't score 10 points in 80gms and who's main selling point was fighting. I'd gladly give up more to get a guy who can PK, blocked shots and had some production. Reaves will not play in the playoffs. He'll be sat for Wilson, Archibald, Aston-Reese, Sprong ... and anyone who might provide some dept scoring in addition to a 2 way game.
There is no heavy weight division. There's guys like Tom Wilson and Austin Watson who do fight, but mostly just bully you in an attempt to get you off your game ... but both those guys can play both sides of the puck and don't cost much more. I'd like to see them winning cups, not fights.
