Blockbuster in Pittsburgh.

I'm tired of typing. This trade was self explanatory. Paul Martin didn't work out, we acquired some future assets for him, including a possible future starter in Kinkaid. We immediately set out to find a replacement and we've done that.

Alex Edler
Anton Rodin
Conditional Van 3rd 2014


Chris Kunitz
Simon Depres
Pittsburgh 2nd 2013

This move gives us a Top 20 NHL Dman in Alex Edler, who plays the left side (a side we're weak on). He's excelled in the past playing with offensive partners, and we plan on taking advantage of that with Kris Letang. We're thrilled to grab a guy like Rodin, who has a high ceiling and just needs some more time to work on his defensive game and consistency.

We wish Chris Kunitz and Simon Depres the best of luck in Vancouver.

We may make one more move on D, but we're quite confident in our bottom pairing despite the league underrating them.
