You don't need everyone to be a puckmover.
Fistrict can be your off-the-glass and out guy. We really need a guy who LOVES defense.A guy who loves to clear the crease, etc.

Now that Redden will be bought out, I wonder if Kenny will take a stab.

Redden signed in St. Louis for one year, 800k.

Is Redden really a upgrade over Cola? He'll probably be healthier, but is he better?

I think he will flourish with somebody like Pietrangelo.

Redden - Pietrangelo
Jackman - Shattenkirk
Russell - Polak
(Colin White)

That is just excellent defence.

The most predicted Stanley Cup final has been St. Louis vs. NY Rangers. If that happens, I just want to see Redden lifting that trophy on front of all those crying Ranger-eyes.

Good news for Red Wings fans... St. Louis will be rolling with 2 1/2 pairs on their blue line... And now that I've said that, Redden is gonna score a hatty or go nuts...

Don't know if I said it on a main board or here, but put out there a couple days ago that in my opinion Redden to the Blues was the worst possible outcome for Wings fans.

Why? A 35 year old who hasn't played in the league for years? It's a nice little project for them, but Pieterangelo and Shattenkirk are what worries me, not Wade Redden.

They needed a left handed d-man and I think Wade Redden still has NHL talent and offers something to St. Louis. It also keeps them from making a more dicey trade to address this need. Shattenkirk and Pieterangelo aren't going to play on the same pairing while they worry me this was a risk I thought was worth taking for St. Louis and one I hoped they didn't take.

Hitchcock wanted him, so he'll definitely use him. I just don't see him being super effective.

Don't see Redden playing 1st pairing with Petro. But you never know, I guess.

Well that sucks... A lot.

Who's the next best defenseman on the market for next year? Looks like our defense isn't going to be improving anytime soon unless there's a big trade.

Apparently 6/$30m. Edler left at least $20 mil on the table. 7/$50m would not have been surprising on the open market.

Very good deal for Vancouver although Edler does come with injury concerns. Although on the open market teams would have just hoped for the best us probably being one of them. just saying not risk free, but certainly a very good value.

Edler is extremely overrated.
I think, like many potential UFAs, he'll take a "hometown discount" that really isn't such a big discount at all, because he knows the offseason market will be tight.

The offseason market will never be tight, though. It wasn't even bad the year the cap was instituted and some teams had to cut their payrolls in half.

In this case, I think Vancouver dodged one not having to sign him to market value. But he's worth the deal he got. Coming off a career year, I don't think he's a regular 50 pt D and his defense is kinda like Kronwall's, flashier than it is effective.

Yeah I am not sure Edler's defensive game will ever be strong enough to be a true #1. He doesn't have the limitations of a Green or Yandle, but I am not sure he is going to get a ton better like some people expect.

That being said, even being a consistent 40-45 point 22-24 minute man is worth 5M.

Few minutes till the first games.. Gotta watch the Pens game, so excited about what Crosby can do this year. Expecting 80+ points.
