According to TSN, Pierre-Luc Dubois has requested a trade out of Columbus.
Part of me wonders if it isn't a request to be traded as far away from Torts as possible.
Knowing Bergevin's desire to draft Dubois in 2016: a key component of the failed Subban trade with Edmonton, I can't help but think that he may be contacting Columbus about acquiring Dubois.
Dubois has just signed a bridging deal with Columbus, so this might impact how you would answer my question.
What would you trade for Pierre Luc Dubois?
My poll options will be vague, but they must realistically include one of our two young centers or we are not part of the Dubois discussion. Where I mention a "top prospect", I am speaking of Guhle, Caufield, Romanov, Primeau, Norlinder.
Please try to consider that we may be competing with multiple teams on this trade proposal.
Be sure to spell out your trade pieces below in the comments. If you wish to get creative and turn this into a blockbuster, I would love to read it.
Full disclosure, I believe that Dubois is better than any forward we have and one of the best forwards in all of hockey. I would go as far as saying he may be a top 5 center in the NHL by the time he reaches his potential. I would certainly move heaven and earth to make this trade happen.
