Ouch! Paying to get rid of him, then paying Emelin to replace him. Is he that bad? Some teams would pay 3 2nds for that.

He was a liability on the ice all season long, caused so many turn overs, made so many dumb decisions, and in my opinion costed Doughty the Norris. Had Doughty been paired with Muzzin I truly believe he would have won the Norris. It's not that Forbort is trash, I just don't want him on my team. He does have upside though just not the player that's going help us become a winning team.

I’d rather have Brickley step in than have to sign Emelin. Let Brickley play with Martinez and Phaneuf play with LaDue. Emelin is just a poor mans Phaneuf

Bringing Emelin in is bringing more depth in. I get what you're saying though. Brickley is most likely starting in Ontario. He'll probably see some 7th D man time along with Fantenberg and MacDermid. It's better to let Brickley develop in AHL than have him be 7th D man and barely play any games.

Getting a second for Derek is okay, but I don't think we really want to trade Iafallo to do it. You're filling the vacancy with Gabe Vilardi, but that's putting a rookie on his off wing as his first exposure to the NHL. I also like the idea of signing Emelin cheaply; he's ideal for a bottom-pairing defenseman.

I'm with bf3351 on this: if Rob Blake gets an offer for two seconds for Forbort, he should jump at the chance.

I appreciate the good feedback! The reason Iafallo is included is because there are a lot of teams who'd be willing to give up a 2nd for a top 6 winger and top 4 defensemen. Also, Vilardi has played LW for a lot of his Junior years. LW and C. Lewis plays both LW & RW and would be a good veteran addition to a Kempe-Vilardi line.
