Chia said he wants to add size down the middle... But Soderberg would be our 4th line C. I much prefer to trade Sturm or Kobasew for a good PM prospect and Put Soder on the wing (provided he does good in camp)
I agree - unless one of the current top 3 centres are moved then Soderberg would fit in much better as a winger, especially if one of Kessel or Kobasew are moved. Come to think of it, if Soderberg is as good as they say and would commit to coming over, it makes it easier to move Kessel knowing you are going to get back huge value in return (hopefully a top D prospect + young winger + pick) and have someone to replace him (not at his level of course but potential 20-30 goal scorer). Plus, Wheeler and Lucic probably improve offensively next year and Strum is back.
