If you look at the current list of defensive free agents after Suter and Carle, it is not so pretty. There are going to be several teams this offseason that are going to be have a large need defensively with nobody to fill it after the top free agents sign. We could get a large package involving picks or prospects for a Braydon Coburn locked up for 4 years at 4.5 million or for a Meszaros locked up for 2 years at 4 million.
no sale..

what if we resign Carle (at coburns price), then cant find a trade to get rid of him..

now we are stuck with his cap hit/roster slot for a guy we dont really want..

i wouldnt hedge my bets on acquiring Carle unless we wanted to play him.

signing someone just on the hopes someone else will trade for him is even riskier..

no thx.
