2nd Favourite Team

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Alfie11</b></div><div>That Ottawa trade is super far off-base. We have two potential 2C candidates in Norris and L. Brown, and we're not trading either until one of them establishes themselves. Also, we have no interest in Risto, our top 3 D prospects are Brannstrom, Thomson, and JBD, all of whom play the right side, and we also have Zub who can hopefully be a good shutdown guy (plus we're stuck with Zaitsev for a while so there's really no room for Risto). Portillo is okay I guess, and it helps that he can play in university rather than join our stocked pro pipeline (both NHL spots, both AHL spots, and ECHL starter are all full to start next year) but I don't see him as having higher end potential than Gustavsson or Sogaard, so even if he's better than Daccord and Mandolese (not really sure about that though), him+2nd isn't gonna convince us to move Norris at this point in our rebuild.</div></div>
Definitely fair all around. And I'm jealous of you having the prospects that you do at RHD lol I thought maybe they would be interested in someone better than Mike Reilly running the PP2 and possibly playing a lot of minutes with Chabot. I think Portillo should be better than Gustavsson and Sogaard. I'm not super high on them evidently though. Fair to turn it down though for sure!
