Bogosian , Shattenkirk , all working for cheap , plus tons of players looking for work this offseason
Budgets are slashed , why give up a 5th when you can chat later with him
I don’t think teams were salivating to sign him
This move all but guarantees an overpay , he was lucky to get 2 years as a UFA IMO
maybe. All I know is that every time MB makes a useless trade, half this board (occasionally myself) starts speculating that the deal must be the precursor to a bigger move. But that never happens. Will be happy to be proven wrong.
I wonder if this is MBs real target to play with Weber & help PP at a more affordable price.Which might be why Bergevin did this if he really wants Krug. Beef up the D. Who knows, maybe he’s trying all this to lure Krug? The PP is atrocious and Krug would certainly help that.
Aaron Ward on TSN690 said Rod the bod expects every one of his Dman from 1-6 to play the same up tempo, rush the puck game and Edmundson not only provided the grit missing amongst the Canes C, he had no issues maintaining tempo and contributing offensively.Well he’s decided nobody with any offensive talent will sign with the Habs so he’s building a bruising defense and got a solid backup. I’m thinking low scoring games.
