Per the article, Trouba's request isn't about money; it's because he feels the right side of Winnepeg's defense is loaded and that he is a better fit elsewhere.
As we know, NJ now has a decent hole on the right side. So a few questions come up;
1) Is Trouba a fit on the right side given the players the Devils have (Severson/Santini mainly)?
2) Is it worth the package of picks/prospects/players it would take to trade for him and what would said package be?
