Blömqvist Posted December 18, 2016 Share Posted December 18, 2016 *Dealing at the trade deadline if we're out of a playoff spot and Benning decides to go into sell mode... EDITED PROPOSAL: 2 hours ago, Blömqvist said: Value-wise not enough for just Edler? What if, instead of taking on Fleury or adding a 1st Round draft pick to their side and considering the drop in stock for Pouliot the trade is modified to... PIT: Edler VAN: Maatta and Sprong ORIGINAL PROPOSAL PIT: Edler and Miller at 50% VAN: Pouliot, Sprong, and Fleury Edler and Miller go to a contender where they have a legitimate shot at winning a cup. Pittsburgh gets a top pairing defenseman on a good contract and still in his prime. Edler can play top minutes alongside Letang or anchor the second pairing and mentor their young players in Maatta and Schultz. Miller gives the Penguins a solid backup in case something happens to Murray. They also receive cap relief of $5.75M for the next two years as Fleury's contract lasts until the 2018.19 season and Miller's contract ends this year. To recap, Pittsburgh gets a top-pairing defenseman, a better 1B goaltender, and cap relief. Vancouver gets an offensive defenseman who has had a bit of trouble adjusting to the NHL game but can still develop into a top-4 defenseman, a speedy high-skilled winger that can develop into a top-6 role or better, and a goalie who can split starts with Markstrom and give Demko more time in the AHL to develop and refine his craft. To recap, Vancouver gets two prospects (potential offensive top-4D and potential speedy skilled top-6 winger) and a backup goaltender. Thoughts?
