Agree 100%. That Zucker trade was a hockey trade - not a rental trade. I don't think you can compare the two. But I am a little upset that Rutherford made that trade. He's one of the few GMs that have no problem parting ways with 1sts and I thought Pageau would be a good fit there.
And I agree that Norris can fit into Pageau's role as a 2C/3C with Tierney playing the opposite. Not a huge Tierney fan but he certainly has a use on this team. The question really becomes if Brown can transition into a 1C or 2C and push these guys down the lineup.
Let’s first see if Brown can ever be a top 6 C.
I’m not sure he’s got the speed or drive for the nhl.
