Nashville's Young Defensemen

How much would each of Blum, Ellis, and Josi cost to be acquired? Obviously, if one of Suter or Weber doesn't get resigned, they become a LOT more valuable to Nashville, but for now let's assume both are locked up long term.

Josi is the player I'd love to have on the Stars the most, but he's also probably the most expensive. We don't have much of a use for Ellis with Goligoski and Larsen. Blum would be a good player for us to have to increase our defensive depth, as long as he isn't too expensive.

I was thinking something like:

Oleksiak + Glennie/Vincour + 2nd

for Josi. I'd hate to lose Oleksiak, but I think he'd be perfect with Ellis. Huge, too, and can be very physical. Glennie or Vincour both could be 30 goal scorers, Vincour with a more defensive edge to his game compared to Glennie's skill. The 2nd would probably be a mid-round pick, but could still be solid in a deep draft like this.

Nashville fans, your thoughts? I feel like I'm undervaluing Josi, but then almost overpaying with the actual proposal.

Flame away.

Josi and Ellis are not available unless they are used in a package to grab a NHLer that we need right now. That player also can't be a rental unless we are talking a rental of the Parise quality. Picks and prospects won't do it.

In all actuality with Suter and Weber still unsigned it's unlikely either move.

What's Blum's value? I'd sure like him on the Bruins

His value is probably as low as its ever been. Doesn't make a lot of sense to move him unless he's a part of a package that brings back a significant need.

And if Weber and Suter are both resigned, how much would in cost to acquire them in the OS?

How would EDM fans feel about Blum for MPS?
