<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Caniac2000</b></div><div>Slavin is a LHD, not a RHD. But you need to look closer at this, Aho and Teuvo aren't "goal scorers" and Svechnikov is a rookie. Anderson in Columbus had 40 goals, does this suddenly make him more valuable than Slavin too? No, 1 year means nothing, especially on a line with Kane and Schmaltz/Strome</div></div>
No theyre not, but using your argument they have below average shots? You mean Atkinson? He's always had about 25-30 goals on an offense starved blue jackets team and when he finally got some good forwards (PLD, Panarin, and Duchene for a short while) since 2016 he had a 35 goal season, 24 goal season (in 65 games he would have EASILY made it to 30 and scored more), and a 41 goals last season Considering he has a resume of consistent goal scoring that makes him very valuable and one of their best players so yeah he alone could get slavin but they dont need defense so the trade wouldnt happen.
