Why trade for someone we could just try and get in FA?? If we are trading ROR, it should be for a young defensman that can grow with the rest of our core.
You'd trade for him because even if we weren't able to re-sign him(we will), we'd trade him to the highest bidder before he hits UFA, who would love to have him.

And you know Edler is only 27, right? I've also heard that the Avs have plenty of good D prospects, and want an established top-pairing defenseman to play with EJ. So go figure.
