What exactly do you guys think Kenny offered for him on draft day? I'm guessing Smith was part of the package.

 

EDIT:  And no, I don't want him. I think he's pretty overrated and am glad that VAN didn't accept.

I'd be very surprised if Smith was involved, unless Holland wanted more than just Edler coming our way.

Not sure how reliable the source is...but I found this.

 

 

A source close to the situation told TFP the Red Wings had offered a package that included young defenseman Brendan Smith in exchange for Edler, but that offer was rejected.

The playoffs likely didn't do good things for Smith's trade value. Any package centered around Smith would not have been worth Edler.

While Smith may not be the second coming of Rafalski, he is light years better than Lebda.


"The more I know about people - the better I like my dog." - Mark Twain

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

Edler is good and all, but I'm kind of glad we didn't get him. Even if Smith is here and there, we've got lots of young guys on the way and Edler has a big price tag.

Franzen, Smith, Samuelson, and Emerton for Edler, Kassian, and David Booth.

Vancouver needs Sammy back on the Sedins line, and he could be talked into going to Vancouver for first line minutes, on the same line where he scored his career highs.

David Booth has been injured a lot in Vancouver, couple that with his affinity for Jesus and hunting, and most of progressive Vancouver hates him.

Send Kassian to GR to get minutes and confidence.

I think we should target a stay at home dman. Ideally that is Girardi due to RH shot but doesn't have to be. We really need to be subtracting Quincey rather than Smith and we can DEFINITELY afford to trade our 1st this year with the plethora of prospects jammed in the pipeline. Franzen isn't worth much due to the contract length despite the cap hit - and we are screwed if he retires (compliance buyout). Edler is very expensive because he is on a great contract and is a top 2 defender on a team that needs him.

 

I would prefer to do something like:

 

1st 2014 + 2nd 2015 + Quincey for Girardi at the trade deadline if NYR are out of the playoffs and can't re-sign all their guys under the cap.

 

EDIT: Also no interest in Booth anywhere near this team.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

I would love to see Edler here, he would add a lot to our PP and bring much more stability to our second defense pairing.

Sorry but I like really like Booth. He's the type of player that can explode in the right system. Idk if that's ours, but he's talented, and maybe playing with Weiss could spark them both
