Whether they are ultimately right or not, they certainly didn't view him as a 1-2 d-man in the making.

I think you'll see Nylander playing with Strome and Debrincat, since he can play his off wing. Bowman stressed that Nylander can do that, I think for a reason.

Like with most trades, time will tell.

Chicago showed you can pick up d-men relatively easy these days, it's top 6 forwards which seem to be in shorter supply. Calgary still needs one.
Yeah but it was opposite last offseason and D will likely become a more valuable commodity again next year. These things are cyclical, so I am not sure how much weight we should put into it... probably more useful to try and stick with player comparables than to try and measure value based on league "availability".
