Well like I said before i dont think Snider is patient enough to draft a defenseman and see if he turns into that #1. Maybe 10 years ago he is patient. now? I dont know.
That being said i agree with you the price would be very high. Nobody gives #1 defenseman away and the odds are that its probably not going to happen anyway unless the Flyers go the OS route.
I dont think Edler the defenseman they should be targeting anyway. Shattenkirk sure. The Blues have some decisions to make. they have their own internal cap so maybe if they put someone like Shattenkirk on the block the price would not require Voracek.
