If Nashville made weber available you can be sure there would be lots of teams lining up to take that risk. I don't see how our potential package is sexy any other way without Edler as we do not have a key forward available that Nashville would probably also like quite a bit in such a deal.

I'm sure Nashville want Edler but at $3m+ more (ie Weber at $6.5m+), take this example using this years numbers, which package would you rather have

Edler, Coho, 1st, Malhotra, Torres, Lapierre, Higgins

Weber, Blizznak, Bolduc, Oreskovich, Rypien
