This is a great trade for the Ice Dogs next year! Woooo!
Agreed, the more who "go for it" in 2017-18 the less contenders in 2018-19.

Ice Dogs might get a nice return for Lochead - maybe a 2000 and a good draft pick? And if not, don't trade him.

I realize he has been one of the Ice Dogs' better d-man this year, but if they are looking to build for the future you have to give something up to get something of value back. I'm still thinking that they (along with Dhillon) bring in 2 high-end OAs next year, so trading him opens two OA spots next year. Just an idea.
Sorry for not getting back to you sooner, I thought that I had answered your question but just noticed that I had not.. hm...

I would not trade Lochead even though, in my opinion, he would provide a nice return for us. He is playing well and getting almost Mantha minutes but not quite. And, I believe that he is a +10 right now.
There are a few other d-men that I would consider moving though, if they could get a fair return.

My original thought has always been that the Ice Dogs will need to bring in four players - 2 of them high-end d-man (OA and/or Import) to get to the next level in 2018-2019. However, the more I see of Willy Lochead play - the more I believe he should be retained as their 2nd OA next year. That will save them some assets - and allow the Ice Dogs to acquire a true elite #1 defenseman next year.
