Will we get it? i doubt that highly
A couple of times, Edmonton has been voted among the 4 least desirable destinations in the league by the players. It's a death blow for signing those vets. If Edmonton wants to go somewhere in the standings, it has to be a creative coach, great development and maybe a couple of reclamation projects who no one else will sign. They need to grow their own lower line players and they have to be good at all positions in development (they seriously lack in defensive development).
