Oh, absolutely. My target for the trade deadline (before that, in fact) would be a dman.
Bogosian played like a top-4 guy for us last year, and that made a big difference. Muzzin-Holl have too much responsibility on this team. Holl seems overwhelmed right now. And Muzzin should be spared during the season because we need him healthy in the postseason - that's right, I would sit him 10 games at least, to make sure he is 100% in the playoffs. We're missing someone big time.
I was hoping for an Ekholm derby but this won't happen. If Anaheim had been bad this year, I'd say target Manson and let Holl patrol the third pairing. Or aim for a seasoned vet like the Isles did when they acquired Andy Greene. There are options.
People complained about Dubas in the off-season, but he did a phenomenal job dealing with the cap constraints. Bunting is a fantastic replacement for Hyman; sorry Hyman lovers, but this was a steal. Kampf could become our Radek Faksa, a legit 3rd line centre for years. Kase is worth at least three times his AAV.
Now, let's hope Dubas can do the same with a d-man. If he can, we're saved.
