Nah, I'd take that trade for the Devils. We aren't competing this year and Graves is most likely not coming back when is contract is up (assuming we sign severson instead). Sure, we are thin this year if we trade Graves but we could also just sign a LHD in FA. After this year, we are loaded with LHD (Bahl, Siegs, Okhotyuk, L. Hughes, Shakir, maybe Topias Vilen).
I'd take a flyer on Barbashev and see if he can repeat his performance
