And if Edler refuses to sign with NYI, Nucks are stuck with a disgruntled player that knows they wanted him gone.
Really you think that is plausible. It's NEVER happened.
Why would Edler be disgruntled? As I said, we don't "want" to get rid of our players, we want Tavares. And when New Jersey traded for Kovalchuk, for example, you don't think they knew Kovalchuk would be willing to re-sign with them?
At the deadline, I'd be willing to throw a huge package at Corey Perry, as it's assumed we'll have some idea that he'd be willing to re-sign long-term with us.
