Based on one exhibition game?

 

Been calling for it for a while.  He can get hit by pucks just as well as Miller or Ott.  The only difference is he might score once in a while.

Well, if the "+" was Marchenko and our 1st probably not. Though we are in a situation where we can probably afford to overpay without really hurting our long-term outlook.
 
But if we can get Fowler out of Anaheim it solves our problem just as much as Trouba would. A 1-for-1 swap like you suggest would work, but I wouldn't add anything extra like krsmith would.
 
Pretty much what I think too. I'm not sure that Trouba is, or will for sure be, any better than DD, and he'd probably cost more, but I'd do it based on the potential.


Nah, I wouldn't sweeten the pot too much. Just a little to make the cap situation work and/or deal with our log jam at forward and defense. Basically throw in someone to sweeten the deal rather than lose them later on waivers.

I also agree that the value of getting Fowler is basically the same as getting Trouba. But all things being equal I think we would rather have a righty. Not that its a deal breaker.
