Edler's contract is an absolute steal for one year, but does not change the fact he has the option to walk after that year. Teams will be, as a result, less likely to give up large assets.
Maybe. I don't really buy that a new contract changes this, though. A player of Kane's caliber is simply more valuable than a #2 defenseman. I just can't see an argument against this.
One thing this thread does show, once again, is that Kane has become incredibly underrated on HF once again. It's funny how cyclical these things are.
