Blue chip, top-4 offensive defenseman prospect expected to hit free agency this July. Anaheim has exlcusive rights initially for 30 days but it looks like he is expected to hit free agency. TSN's Bob McKenzie expects him to be the top UFA behind Parise and Suter this offseason. Even though we have a good offensive defenseman in Smith, a top level prospect would be good for our prospect pool. Any one have thoughts?

NBC Sports PHT article

Edit: just saw the topic in the prospects section, but might as well keep this here since not many people frequent that section of the forum.

Never heard of him. But a top prospect is a top prospect. I'm sure The Wings may be on his list, but do we want some premadonna that refuses to sign for an NHL team? Who does he think he is? No thanks.

Agreed. These premadonnas are a diamond dozen. It's a doggy dog world out there so these kids shouldn't be taking stuff like this for granite.

Wasn't the "Diamond Dozen" a short lived supergroup formed by David Bowie in the late seventies? I bet Snoop would know. It's his world after all.

Why wouldn't you try to get a top level prospect through free agency?

Every team in the league is going to make him an offer, so it all depends on who puts together the best welcome package.

Girardi is their top defenseman, he got more ice-time than any other Ranger in the regular season and in the playoffs. The only way a 2 for 1 trade like that is attractive to the team giving up 1 guy is if one of the players in return is rgarded as having the potential to possibly be as good some day. If Girardi wanted out of N.Y. for some reason it would take something more like Quincey or White + Smith or Nyquist

i think you guys are SERIOUSLY underestimating girardi if you think the rangers would deal him for quincey and i white package.... try smith and nyquist


as for schultz... this kids not going to sign here unless we offer him a top 6 spot. wings will want him in the AHL, other teams will take him right on their roster. move ericcson or kindl and we could get him most likely but i can almost guarantee that wont happen.

I meant to tack on Nyquist, don't know why I didn't. Though, since we're on the subject - I don't think Smith + Quincey for Girardi would necessarily be dismissed outright. Not that I'm full-on disagreeing, mind you.

At any rate, I'm thinking maybe we should try to solidify our blue line this summer and focus on our forward corps. next summer, when the UFA pool is deeper, better. (Realistically, this team's issues can't all be addressed and resolved in one season.) I guess in my perfect world we'd add Suter, Girardi, and Bryan Allen.

Lidstrom - Suter
Kronwall - Girardi
Ericsson - Allen
Smith

I don't think we'll get Shultz. But then, I don't think we'll trade for Girardi. (For shame, for shame....)
