Okay i concede you were right about last year him being good purely defensively, but that has not carried over to this year. He has atrocious defensive numbers this year even though he benefits from the system that the coyotes play. If Hjalmarsson is even in his late 20's i might consider this trade, but he will be 33 next year. That does not seem like a recipe for success. Some people are mad about resigning Muzzin until he is 34 while he is still producing well all around at 30 1/2, but you want to trade for a 33 year old HJalmarsson whos decline has already set in?
