the source may be a weak link, but this is the most interesting thread in a while for a speculation starved CDC.
Philly has an OBVIOUS need where we have strength, and they have a plethora of what we need most. It makes a whole lot of sense.
Add to this the fact that Edler is probably looking for big money and a full NTC. I don't think Gillis wants to alter his salary structure, and having your top-4 all have NTC's really handcuffs a team. Switching Edler for someone who makes Bieksa-Hamhuis-Garrison-Ballard money or less, and strenthening our forward corps in the process seems pretty reasonable.
