Enstrom just signed for 5.75, and he's a slightly inferior defenseman to Edler, so you can imagine what the FA market for d-men would be. It would be nearly impossible to replace a player like Edler, and especially for you y2k, I know you're all about the short-term goals of the team. There is zero chance this team is better without Edler in the short-term, (or in the long-term)
You can hope & pray that BC born player wants to sign here (Hamhuis or Garrison to a lesser extent) for under market value; but that always doesn't work (eg., Shultz).
