There's a good chance of that, yes. I don't know what the offers were, but guys like Skinner & Couturier were being thrown around. I'll have Skinner + Ballard over Edler on my team, quite easily.

And I know we heard that Carolina wasn't interested, yes, but if it's a comparable player being offered elsewhere, you get the point. I don't think Edler's the franchise d-man that a lot of people evidently do. He's good, but he's expendable.
