I was against it & I still don't think it'll happen but I'm starting to believe it should.

If Edler's NTC kicks in, we then have our top 4 D locked up for the next 3 years & all of them will have NTCs.

We have up & coming D. Tanev & Corrado both able to play right now.
Tommernes signed & coming next year. Anderson looking like he deserves a shot soon.
We have no room for any of our young D to move up in the depth chart.
To make 3 solid pairings out of our top 6, someone has to play out of position or one of our top 6 ends up in the bottom pair.

We need scoring help in our top 2 lines.
If we keep all 4 of our top 4 D, we just don't have the cap space needed to add much top 6 help.

(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $63,662,778; BONUSES: $0
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $637,222

I used Iginla & Jagr as top 6 wingers, but didn't add anything from trading Edler, they were mostly salary placeholders, as were the spare forwards & the 7th D.
Although I do like the idea of clearing space to sign Iginla & Jagr. Then if it doesn't work & we suck at the trade deadline, we can trade them both to contenders for assets.
i'd loooooove to get tanev at that price but pretty sure he'll get about 50 RFA offer sheets thrown his way if mg doesn't sign him first

i predict minimum 2 mil
