This is how I see it too, they need a goal scoring RW and if they need an extra winger or center they should be able to fill that from Providence (Frederic, Studnica, etc.)That’s a little too much surgery to the roster for my blood. They really just need a goal scoring right wing and maybe an extra winger/center. I wouldn’t be touching the defense. I can’t see any scenario where they trade DeBrusk before the deadline. They’d essentially need to get 2 wingers back in any sort of deal. From the Rangers that’d be Kreider and I guess Buchnevich? That doesn’t enthuse me.
Expanded deal to me means including Backes as a cap dump. Something like the Rick Nash trade from 2018.
