Nick Foligno isn't worth a 1st, but would cost a 1st.
17 goals in his last 109 games. We're already playing enough guys who don't do enough offensively but play solid 200 foot games (Engvall, Mikky, Simmonds, Thornton, Kerfoot, etc). We could really use another creator in the lineup, we're 2nd in expected goals against over the last 6 weeks (7th overall on the season)...we don't need a guy who helps us defensively at 5 on 5....hilariously, we could really use another guy on our power play. We're using some really marginal talent on both units right now. If we're looking at a glaring issue with our skaters that can kill us in a hurry in the playoffs, that's it. That we've become so good defensively, and Jack's play of late, are the only reasons we're not screaming from the fucking rafters about how necessary it is to fix the PP before the playoffs.
We get anemic offensively in a hurry if Auston isn't right.
