They only need to make small tweaks to maintain or improve their positioning, so a low-cost player like Stoll fits.Stoll gets an opportunity to play for one of the league’s best teams, rebuild his value after a tumultuous offseason and doesn’t have to be a standout piece to make a difference. It’s a win-win move for both sides heading into the 2015-16 season.
