<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ChiHawk</b></div><div>Wrong. Clearly you don't watch the games. Keith was paired with rookies and BoQ who struggled a lot defensively, people who didn't watch him and only are looking at stat sheets don't understand this. If you go into his advanced analytics, when he played with a decent partner like Murphy, he looked good still.
That said, he's not a 1st liner anymore despite the hawks forcing him into 24 minutes a night but he definitely is a good 18 to 20 minute player as a #4 or #5 and anyone saying he's washed up and isn't a NHL player is purely ignorant. His contract has 2 years left also, but the salary is only $1M a year. Hawks should retain some, but at half retained, Hawks shouldn't do this trade. Much rather keep Keith on the roster as a #4 or #5 then give him up for free.
Strome is definitely worth a couple 2nd round picks if not a late 1st. Moving Neal, who IS worthless, costs money and more then a 3rd rounder. This trade doesn't work. Strome for Neal = 1st and 3rd to the Hawks. Keith requires a 3rd or 4th at half retained. Bump up the 3rd to a 2nd and it's close.</div></div>
Chicago is looking to add on D and need the cap to do that, Keith can’t be bought out, Neal can, Keith was the second worst defender in the league in xGF%, Chicago is better with him not on the ice lolol. Salary means nothing unless the owner is hurting for cash, which Edmonton is not. Every rookie Keith played with did better without him so what does that show? Based on performance alone, he has negative value lolol
