Van definitely says no to this one ... change Helm to Filpula and that might be more realistic.

That said - I say ride out whatever this joke of a 40 game season might be and go for Edler @ free agency. Right before the lockout the difference between Gillis and Edlers management was 2+ million. If Gillis thinks hes going to strong-arm Edler into a Kesler contract when Suter just struck the jackpot hes dreaming.

Even if Edler gets resigned a stop-gap such as timmonen wouldnt be bad either. A few years from now our top 4 will be Kronwall, Smith, Sproul, Ouellete. What we need to trade for is a big bodied stayhome defenseman that plays physical. We have extra forwards to throw at guys like Regehr or D. Murray.
