If the intention of this is to subsequently send Mike Green+ to NSH for Shea Weber, it won't work IMO. Despite being an RFA, Green will not likely re-sign with NSH for the same reasons Weber will not likely re-sign there.
Edler is a UFA who has never achieved the personal achievements of Green and never will.
There's still a good chance Edler outperforms him from his season onwards.
As I said, Mike Green would be high-risk, high return. It all depends how much faith people have that he can make a comeback. Personally I think he will, but after some thought I don't think the difference between Edler and a prime Green is worth the risk.
Thanks, no. Edler's brutal playoffs aside, he's still our best dman, and I'd need to know Green can actually come back to be the offensive force he was before I'd even consider a straight-up swap. The fact we'd be getting rid of Raymond as well makes it tempting, but no go.
