You go hard after Streit in the offseason.
You continue to develop Gostisbehere.
And you draft a defenseman high in this draft and next year.
Also, I'm not saying that Gus is going to be a #1 defenseman, but I really think his ability to carry minutes is going to be solid through his prime. Some people around here underestimate him substantially. He's not Timonen, but I have him penciled into our top 4 starting next year.
If you see the Flyers follow the model I just demonstrated, they will have no problems with their defense for years to come.
Streit - Schenn
Timonen - Coburn
Grossmann - Gustaffson
I mean that's ok but once you take out Timonen is get's a little hairy. I'm just saying that if you get somebody like Edler, you have an established puck-mover that you know can play top minutes. Streit might not even be a guarantee to sign.
