#1 target if he's available has to Edler, exactly what we need a good 2 way Top pairing Dman to play with EJ.

If Edler isn't available, I don't really think we should sign anyone else. Our Forwards are pretty set at this point, and we don't need anymore Defenseman unless its a true Top pairing Dman.

We need to keep the cap space we have until we can get a Top Dman, then we'd be set for the most part.
Unless you sign a top tier UFA forward and then trade one of the existing forwards for that D man. I could see any of Jones, McGinn, or Downie being involved in a package trade for a D man or even Stastny, O'Reilly, or Duchene depending on the quality of the guy being brought in.

For example, the Avs sign Ryan Getzlaf this sumer on the UFA market. Maybe you then trade Stastny to Toronto for Gardiner, Frattin, and a pick and/or prospect... Or you trade Stastny for Jack Johnson. Just for a few examples.
