I agree. He needs to go somewhere protected as we have seen he can't handle being the number one. Perhaps would be better suited as a #3-4 on depth.

He's a perfect fit in Detroit.  What would we get for him?  Is he worth a first?

Elder would be a great fit in:

 

Edmonton

Toronto

carolina

New Jersey

Ottawa

Philly

NYI

FLorida

Detroit

LA

Dallas

Colorad

Columbus

 

 

and would be an upgrade over

 

Markov in MTL

I could see an opportunity here with Detroit. They want Datsyuk off their books. Edler for Datsyuk's contract and their 1st rounder. I don't know what would make it a fair trade for both sides, but it could be worth looking at. I want to see JB try to jump into the 16-20 spot to pick up Logan Stanley.

Draisaitl to Vancouver and Edler to Edmonton?

 

Personally I would like to see him go east and especially not in the same division.

Detroit would have to add significantly.  We could resign Hammer to soften the blow, but Edler would garner a mid first and possibly a prospect on his own.

 

great contract and in a 2-3 role with a Offensive RHD partner, he would be lights out. 

 

I honestly thought Ottawa was going to make a move for him, then they got P-goof...  Edler paired with Karlson would be fantastic for the Sens

I don't think Edler is going to be moved this year. Adding Gudbranson to the line up gives us better balance on defence and Gudbranson can take some of the heavy minutes, putting Edler in a better situation. 

 

The only move I would like I see is Moving out Sbisa and retaining Hamhuis to guide Trymakins development.  A third pairing of Hamhuis and Trymakin would be really positive.

Even in the unlikely hood that they are you'd at least hope Edmonton wouldn't be that dumb.

I don't think it's his d partner that's the problem. He makes bad defensive decisions. His age is also becoming a factor and would, IMO, be a key point in any negotiations. An argument could be made, that at his salary, he is not living up to expectations. 

And here's another crazy idea. What if JB and crew make a real effort to get Datsyuk to come back for the last year of his contract and succeed? Wouldn't that be something?

The Oilers would hang up.  I hate them, but Draisatl has a VERY high ceiling.  I could see them parting with RNH for Edler.

This thread is hilarious.

All you guys bending over backwards to point out A: how valuable he is. B: how well he would do for other teams. 

 

The fact seems to have escaped many of you how this team's D sucked after Edler went down injured. We need Edler a hell of a lot more than other teams do, we are still not sure we can make the playoffs even with Guddy and yet we are offloading our best and most physical D.

I want to to rebuild but if you want to "re tool" you trade assets and try to replace them via UFA.You really only have to do it for one year to get a retool. Watch:

 

 

Trade Edler to Arizona 

Edler 5th, Sbisa for strome, 7th, fischer

 

draft one of the 3 d men and now you have - a future 1C, a future no 2-3 d man and another top 6 forward. 

then, looking at our prospect pool, that gives us

 

- a future 1G - Demko

-a future 1C - strome

a future 2C - Horvat

 

a winger group of Boeser, virtanen, fischer, Beartschi, Gaunce, Etem

 

no real future 1D - which is all we are missing now

 

- d crops of future:

Hutton - a no 2 D

Tanev - a no 2D

Gubranson - a 3/4 D

-Tryamkin - who knows - anywhere from 1-6

 

other d prospects with promise including

- whoever we draft at 7

-Brisebois

-Subban

-Olson

 

 

then sign some UFAs to stay competitive - re sign Hammer and try our best to add one more D like Yandle r Goglioski and a winger or two like Ericsson, Ladd etc - with this one trade we alter our future and get a ton of cap space.

I actually don't see the other team going for any of that.

Edler looks good tonight, I'm sure it's refreshing not to be playing stacked mins, .. Playing with a bit of that Prowess again.

Adding Guddy lightens the load for everyone.  You can see how much it helps everyone's play on the backend.  But particularly happy to see Edler with a bit more swagger

Wow, Edler caused more turnovers than any of our D that are fighting for a spot.He is gonna be a liability on our back-end again this year. Please trade him and keep stetch and or larson. Hell Pedan played a great game tonight.

Edler was easily our best D out there tonight. His vision along with poise and skill is unparalleled on the back end right now. Tanev is solid, but lacks the range and skating ability of Edler. 

Everyone is so critical of Alex Edler, but we're a much better team with a healthy and confident Elder than without.
