Considering how high risk Edler is, it would not be a good pairing. Can we clone a mirror image Hamhuis - one that shoots right? Tanev is not it. He is alright as a sixth D, but not much more - at least not yet - maybe in another year. We'll have to see how our prospects have progressed, but if HF is right, we don't have much in the pipe, contrary to the propoganda issuing from the Canucks head office and their fans - rated 29th for player scouting/development and they deserve every last bit of that awful rating. Of course, trading away your first round picks for dreck doesn't help, nor does trading two fourths+ for Pahlsson.
I would love to see some sort of source that shows off this apparent 'rated 29th for player scouting/development'. And since you dont have a source you full of #$%$!
Edit - Oh wait I found it...its an ESPN article...from pre season 2011....nuff said.
The article also shows that the teams that are ranked highest are teams that have been stock piling top picks due to terrible showings over the last 5 years or more.
