Having watched Buffalo quite a lot the past couple of years, it's evident that Ristolainen lacks the speed and defensive awareness to handle first pairing duties, at least on a team like the Sabres. What they need is a defensive stalwart who can eat 25 minutes of simple shut-down hockey - being the safety net for Dahlin to learn from and solve mistakes for. How about something like Ristolainen for A.Larsson + 2nd? Could benefit both teams. Dahlin gets a Swedish mentor, Edmonton gets their PP-defenceman. Thoughts?
