To VAN: Michael Ryder, Mark Fistric
To DAL: Alex Edler
Why for Van? Vancouver is still missing that top 6 guy. Ryder is it. Defensively sound, strong on his skates and durable. Fistric is that hulking stay at home defenseman we need who can hit (4/game last season) and block shots (2/game last season) and make everyone think twice before running our players or our tender. Fistric somehow plays that role without being a goon (41pims last season). We lack this type of player and they are vital come playoff time.
Why for Dal? Dallas beefed up their offense this off season with Whitney and Jagr making Ryder expendable. They still lack a punch from the back end and Edler gives them that threat and makes their team all the more dynamic.
