Christian Ehrhoff

Pros:
-offensive minded with great defensive skills
-great hard shot
-great skating ability
-still young
-steps up in the playoffs

Cons:
-tends to make bad decisions
-shot from the blue-line is often wide (improved some this past year)


other than all this what would you think a team would offer for him?
he is a rising stud and will only get better.

I'm curious to see what other teams value him at as well. I think his stock was rising most of the past season, but dipped off a little near the end. I still think he has great potential - he has all the tools. He's fast, strong defensively, and has an incrdible shot 25% of the time. He does take bad penalties occasionally, but he's young.

Ehrhoff is seriously undervalued. When he was given playing time, his shot was great, he made no mistakes, and he looked like a younger version of Scott Niedermayer. I really don't understand Ehrhoff and how he has been coached. Under both RW and TM, when Ehrhoff is given 1st unit PP time and ice time with a good defenseman, he produces great numbers and his line works really well. Last year, I think part of the reason was that TM tried to match an offensive-minded guy with a defensive minded guy. However, Vlasic and Lukowich have more offensive skill in their thumbs than Doug Murray. Also, Ehrhoff saw little ice time with JT's unit, and spent most of the time on the ice with the third and fourth units. Because these are more defensively oriented lines, Ehrhoff was unable to explore offensively.

As a stand-alone player, he is the team's best defensive defenseman. Vlasic is usually great, but only when paired with a guy he doesn't have to cover. He doesn't have the speed to get in to a new position if his partner is out of his. Blake and Murray also don't have that speed, and Lukowich is only a bottom-pairing guy. Boyle probably has Ehrhoff's speed, but he doesn't have his frame and generally has a lot of offensive license. Ehrhoff's defensive skill explains his PK ice time.

You have to cover for Blake much more than you have to cover for murray. Even if Murray is a physical force he rarely puts his linemate in a tough position.

That is not true. The only reason why you cover for Blake more is because he plays more. If Murray and Blake were given equal time, you'd probably have to cover Murray more because when Blake screws up, he generally takes a penalty instead of causing a break.

How is a 33 year old Bryce Salvador and his career high 16 points near equal value to a 27 year old Christian Ehrhoff with a career high 42 points?

Blue Jackets:

Ehrhoff

Sharks:

Klesla
09 1st

If Sharks fans don't think that's enough for Ehrhoff, what else would the Jackets need to add?

To be honest I would not want a D in return necessarily. We've got Josilin in the wings and he needs to get some more NHL time. I think the Sharks would be looking for wingers. Either young skilled top 6 or bottom 6 gritty grinders. Also a young goalie looking to steal a starting position if we don't get Gustavson.
