A team like Oilers I can see doing it. They dont have anything in there system that looks to be a #1 dman and there roster lacks it as well.

Likely they would threaten to go offersheet and work out a trade with Hawks instead but the Oilers would be a perfect landing spot.
Well you cant let a guy like Seabrook walk without a viable replacement, and no Boynton/Cullimore experimentation nonsense.

I dont see Seabrook walking or traded without something nice coming back (another top 4)... Well, unless the Hawks feel Leddy or someone else can step up and play top 4....

IMO its pretty difficult to part ways with an anchor... Seabrook is proven and you dont fix whats not broken. Bringing in someone new who doesn't know the system or style will always be a gamble, unless its someone from within the system.. Look at Kovalchuk in New Jersey.... thats the definition of fail..
