<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Old_Snowman</b></div><div>Everyone's freaking out because Miller is a top notch D prospect....but the Rangers are swimming in those. They have Miller, Lundkvist and Fox. They also have Trouba and Skjei. That's 5 x top four defensemen. Not including Shattenkirk. Where do they all fit?
Detroit has lots of good D prospects but Miller or Lundkvist would be a great add to Seider, McIssac, Hronek, and Cholowski. I'd be happy with either.
Namestnikov, Smith, and (Miller or Lundkvist) for a 2nd round pick. NY's cap problems disappear to sign Trouba and Buch and Detroit gets a young prospect. They let Namestnikov walk as a UFA and can eat Smith's salary next year when Ericsson and Daley are off the books. I'm sure Detroit fans would flip at the though of Smith returning but it'd be worth it if Miller of Lundkvist comes in. All hinging on Smith waiving that NTC to Detroit.</div></div>
Fox, Lundkvist and Trouba are all right handed. Yes we have quality depth with Hajek, Lindgren, Reunanen and Day. but odds are is only one of them will end up being a good defenseman in the NHL, maybe none. Miller is the only LHD prospect that has top pairing potential. Yes we have Skjei, but he's not a true top line defenseman. I'd rather have a top 4 of Trouba, Fox, Skjei and Miller, we don't lose control of lundkvist until 2022. We could sign him to his entry level deal just before then to maximize the time to control him. We will need the cheap depth as Kravtsov, Kakko, Fox and Zibanejad all need new deals that offseason
