TheRussianRocket. Posted August 3, 2013 Share Posted August 3, 2013 If Edler doesn't improve but isn't awfully horrible, let's say average or slightly below, and it seems like he won't be able to turn things around, it'd make sense to give him to an organization that knows how to turn players around. Keep in mind Edler's value wouldn't really drop much cause right now his value is high and he's had a horrible year this past season - comes to show his value is stable for the most part. A change of scenery would be the best option for him and the Canucks and best part of all is that he'd be in a different conference. ...as for the proposal, here it is on trade deadline day: To Detroit : Alex Edler - 1st pair dman to help bolster the Wings depleted blueline immediately. Jordan Schroeder - Prospect with play making abilities to replace youth loss of Detroit. To Vancouver : Brendan Smith - 24 year old Canadian replaces Edler on D and has top 4 potential to fully develop into. Tomas Tatar // Martin Frk // Tomas Jurco - young winger prospect with promising potential. - Tatar : 1 year remaining on his ELC. The 22 year old left winger Slovak has proven himself in the AHL which has given him a shot in the big league. On the Wings, given limited minutes, Tatar notched 7 points in 18 games; not too shabby at all given 3rd line minutes and shows what he can do it. A playmaker with the ability to score who has top 6, high scoring forward potential. Solid frame at 5'11", 185lbs with room to get bigger. Out of the 3, Tatar is the best all around player and his style of play has been compared to the likes of Marty St. Louis. He has the lowest risk to become a bust. - Frk : The 19 year old Czech is freak of nature offensively. Frk is 6'0", 195lbs whose natural position is right wing. Fresh into his ELC, he has 3 years remaining on his contract. Frk gets the job done offensively but other than that, don't expect much more. Defense is his weak point and his skating is somewhat a question. Frk in brief is a powerforward who can stick handle in tight areas, stick handle through traffic, has a nose for the net and is known for his NHL calibre shot this young. Scouts have pointed his shot is "excellent" and is one of the best for his age. Sniping powerforward with high scoring forward top 6 potential. Out of the 3, Frk is a one dimensional player who gets the job done in dirty areas and his style of play has been compared to the likes of Johan Franzen. He has the highest risk to reach his potential. - Jurco : The 20 year old Slovak has 2 years left on his ELC and is a wizard. At 6'2", 190lbs, the right winger has made a name for himself. The prospect sensation is majestic with the puck and can just about do every and any move there is. He has made quite the name for himself and has dangerous raw talent. The thing that makes Jurco unique is that he is a rare mix bread of powerforward and a sniper naturally. Tomas has the dynamic ability to drive to the net and ripple mesh or he can rip it past the goalie as he enters the zone. This raw talent he posses makes defenders respect the threat he poses as either a powerforward who can crash the net and put the puck in the net or a sniper who can label a shot in, keeping opposing players uneasy while in the defensive move. Jurco is solid defensively as well and is responsible while on the ice and has top 6 high scoring forward potential. Out of the 3, Jurco is one of those players who has that 'it' factor which players like only Datsyuk have who seem to somehow get the job done, and his style of play has been compared to the likes of Datsyuks. He is known for his coast to coast rushes and makes his presence felt as an electrifying phenom which comes as a rarity now a days. He has the highest reward if he reaches full potential; if he doesn't, he'll likely become a versatile 2nd/3rd liner with X factor abilities to break through here and there. Out of the 3, I personally would take Jurco just because of the Datsyukian like play and 'it' factor he has and it's something that is just a phenom which can't be explained, and the crazy potential he can reach if developed fully. Each 3 players play a different style of hockey and bring something unique to the table which the others don't. They all have their own pros and cons which you can decide for yourself. Similarity between all 3 is that all are 2nd round picks and play wing. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
