JR said his #1 priority was fixing the D for next year. He seems happy with our group of forwards, although I'm sure he wouldn't pass up a good deal if it came to him. I had a decent trade idea given recent events.
How do people here feel about the prospect of trading for Sheldon Souray? He came out and demanded a trade after the season ended, that drops his value significantly as Edmonton will be forced to trade him. He is only 33 and his actual salary is lower than his Cap hit, he only makes $4.5 million for the next 2 years. He could be a very solid option to fill out our top-4. Unofficial hardest recorded slap-shot in History at the Edmonton Superskills competition at 106.7 mph last year. Edmonton may be looking to take back veteran wingers like Samsonov or Larose that can chip in 15-20 goals next year. Maybe Samsonov/Larose + Picard's Rights + one of our two later 2nd Round Picks this year for Souray.
