apollo Posted May 1, 2015 Share Posted May 1, 2015 Super down still from the way our season crumbled... Thought I'd make a proposal. I love Edler but it's evident our D needs a shake up and I don't see why juice or Hammer would waive. I'm just SPECULATING here but I think Ottawa would be one of the few teams Edler would waive for. Here are reasons why he would waive 1. Very good friends with Karlsson and could form a much better top pair with him than Methot like they did in the Olympics. 2. Stays in the better Country and doesn't have to go to a dump in the US. 3. Goes to a young up in coming team that could really compete next year and have a shot at the cup. 4. Plenty of cap space for him in Ottawa + the can add more to the team with all their cap 5. He'll be under far less pressure than Vancouver. Smaller market and the spotlight is generally on Karlsson. 6. Edler wouldn't mind leaving the spotlight. Probably one of the most low key guys on our team. The Proposal Edler + Matthias for Zibanejad. ** should Shawn stay with Ottawa, Vancouver gets a second rounder. Either 2015 or 2016 whatever Murray is happy with. Matthias would easily top 20+ goals in the east. He feasts off the sad, weak eastern conference. (sorry had to take a shot at the east) Next step. Sign Mika. 3 years 8.25 (2.75 cap hit). He'll remain with Vancouver for the duration of the Sedins contract. No brainer for him to play with arguably the greatest Swedish athletes of all time (sorry zlatan, soccer is a dive fest) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
