The only thing I can think of is that they think Boqvist, Mitchell have a higher ceiling than Joker. Right now it looks like we got the short end of thos trade, but I will hold out hope that Nylander lives up to his potential. Kid has only played in 19 NHL games
Somehow Joker did not fit what JC wanted in a D-man. JC called Joker out, and once he got demoted writing was on the wall. Not sure about Nylander, but seems like Stan is really high on him. Guess we will see how it plays out.
