the wings said since two years that they need a top two defenseman now they a three solid defenseman in the nhl available for a trade

ALEX EDLER
KEVIN BIEKSA

what is the price to pay ?

on the ufa market they have some good options but top 4 defense :
RON HAINSEY

TOMAS KABERLE
DOUGLAS MURRAY


they other options is stay with our defense (smith,quincey,ericsson,dekeyser,kronwall,lashoff, kindl) and just signed a good two-way defense ..this is not a bad options
they have a lot of good two way defenseman on the ufa market:

Edler's not moving from Vancouver.

At this point, unless we can trade for a top-pairing defenseman, we're better off rolling with what we have.

Of the three, it only makes sense to go for Bogosian, because he has the better all around game and is harder for other forwards to play against because of his size. Would probably also be potentially easier to get Bogosian away from Winnipeg, because they lack quality NHL-ready forwards and they already have Enstrom and Byfuglien, so they could handle his loss better.

It would take a large package, though. My first guess is something like: 2nd/3rd line NHL forward, high defensive prospect and a high draft pick. You're going to have to give, to get him. But the price could simply be too high from WPG's perspective.

Elder is the same size or bigger. And better, but I'll let that one slide because of the age difference.

Bogosian would be by far the hardest to get out of those 3. Bieksa would be the easiest, but he's the worst.
