My heart likes Kane but my head prefers another solid defenseman. Also, would Kane be willing to play on the 3rd line? I don't like breaking up the Czechia guys, and am curious as to whether someone of Kane's star power would be willing to play on the 3rd line.Kane is really the only player I want. Some combo of Reilly, Smith, Greer, and a pick hopefully can get it done.
I am not savy on cap structures so I don't know if retaining any salary helps a trade but having Kane on the third line with Coyle and Hall essentially gives us 4 great lines with Freddie moving to the 4th with Nosek and Figgy.
I like our defense and how Monty mixes and matches given situational hockey.
Both U and Sway are both really good so I don't feel a LHD is a necessity.
