It’s not all analytical analysis from me. It’s also eye and I’m saying that a team that will use him as a Top Pairing defenseman because he just plays better than Dahlin in certain areas that fit a Top pairing. You understand the fact we aren’t desperate for cap space when we put Steen and Tarasenko on LTIR.</div></div>
I never brought the cap space into the discussion for a reason.
And yes, Dunn does some incredibly good things when he's out there and I think he will still be a very good defenseman. Top pairing? Possibly, but a top 20 defenseman in the NHL? No, he won't.
I like his game, but he makes a lot of mistakes out there. He's certainly better than Faulk, i agree with that, but he still makes quite a few mistakes and doesn't ever take over a game. Again, i love Dunn and want him to be a Blues player for a long time, but he doesn't deserve to get back a top prospect and a first. That's just not reasonable
