Edler would probably only cost something we wouldn't want. Plus I'm not a huge fan of him. He's had difficulty beating middle of the road minutes (He basically faces competition equal to Burmi each year and has beat them similarly corsi wise).

I'd be more interested in maybe getting Tanev: wouldn't cost nearly as much, and would likely be worth more to us than he'd cost... he most likely will be an upgrade to Hainsey if he's not already there. 22 years old and he's already beating tough minutes. He's not an offensive machine but more of a "dependable guy". Problem is, do we have anything we could give up, not downgrade, and not mortgage the future... Maybe Hainsey + pick(s)

Enstrom - Bogosian
Tanev - Trouba

PP1: Enstrom - Bogosian (Kept these two together for "chemistry")
PP2: Trouba - Byfuglien/Postma

PK1: Tanev - Trouba (Kept these two together for "chemistry")
PK2: Melchiori/Yuen - Bogosian
I think that's a top4 that can win a cup in my mind 3-4 years down the road

I'm making some assumptions in this hypothetical world:
Byfuglien probably will regress by year 3 or 4, so you would shelter him on the 3rd with big PP TOI or trade him if forwards need bolstering for a cup run.
