You can never prove a negative argument in history. No one can prove Abe Lincoln wasn't a pimp, but you can prove he was president of the United States. Even after the fact, there will be no proof that Edler doesn't want to sign.

As for Barker and now Vandermeer, depth is great if the kids aren't ready to step up. Corrado, Connauton, Sauve and Tanev at camp, these two new guys, and our 5 top 4 defenders should equate into some solid, solid depth for any need.

I have no delusions about either new signing, both are one trick ponies in the NHL, but point is, if we need that dimension due to injuries or a roster shake up, we have it. This is no different then having guys like Parent here in the past.
