I think with an abundance of d-men you can afford to trade one of them to improve your team and satisfy another need. I highlighed that they are in need of centermen, especially in the Metro where their divisional rivals feature the likes of Crosby, Malkin, Barzal, Backstrom, Hisher, and Kuzneztov. Jordan Stall is not exactly a favourable matchup. I had asked you if you could think of a way of improving upon the value using different prospects, and you completely ignored that. Someone else had mentioned Duchene, and I would actually consider that especially if he won't re-sign. It's simple Ottawa needs D-men, Canes need Centerman, Canes can afford to trade D-men, Ottawa can afford to trade Centermen. Thanks for your time.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Bcarlo25</b></div><div>value is very far off. If Colin White puts up a 20-25 goal season this year, then maybe, but I still don't think it's enough. Pesce is legit, and on a very nice deal.</div></div>
I agree, but the Canes still have Slavin, Hamilton, Faulk, and Fleury. They also have Bean coming up in the next few years. At center however they are lacking, Rask just got injured and will be out for months, so their first line center is Jordan Stall. White won't put up 20 goals this year, but he has that potential in the next few years to become that player. Along with Necas, this would bolster their middle, and Balcers is coming off a 23 goal 48 point rookie season in the AHL displaying plenty of scoring potential. Do you feel like a different center prospect like Batherson or Brown would be better? Personally the way I see it they are slightly less NHL ready than White.
