I personally wouldn't do the deal because there's too much "boom or bust" potential, Montreal's looking to be competitive in a year and making this move could push them back a couple years if it busts out. If Domi's dealt it'll be a hockey trade 'à la' Seth Jones/Johansen trade where both teams get a quality player at the expense of a deep roster position (Montreal has centers but misses that top line scoring winger).

Jesse hasn't hit 20 goals in his 139 career NHL game and doesn't want to play for your team (I don't stick to the "I could come back" rumour and think it's mainly a PR stunt from his clan to regain interested from other GMs), what makes him a "very good prospect with high potential"?

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>uphere</b></div><div>The concern about resigning AA has far more to do with the impact on limited cap space than whether or not the team wants him back. Edmonton has around $9M in cap space and a number of gaps in the roster that need upgrades over last season. Qualifying Athanasiou requires a minimum offer of $3M, and allows him to take the team to arbitration. If an arbiter awards him a larger salary Edmonton is seriously hooped. Aebitrators are not supposed to take into consideration the the team's finances or cap situation. Only out of an arbiters ruling cones if the player is awarded $4.6M or more. Media has picked up on this and speculated that the absence of news about qualifying offers must mean the Oilers are concerned. Of course only the player, his agent, and team menagement know the real story.</div></div>
Interesting take! It's true that cap isn't infinite and the arbitration will look at comparable players not comparable cap situations. They have to sign Bear this fall and need to keep some money aside for Kailer cause if he's keeping the same pace he's en route for a huge raise.

Sujet: Edmundson
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>F50marco</b></div><div>Forget Petry as a comparison. If Edmunson can be roughly as effective as Chiarot has been for the Habs thus far I'd be over the moon ecstatic. MB clearly thinks he can be better than he showed this past year and that he would fit our team style better as well. The only important factor here is what he signs for. Based on his accomplishments and current NHL climate, he shouldn't get anything north of 4M and anything longer than 3 years. Hopefully exactly what Chiarot got.

And worse comes to worse and he doesn't budge from 5M*5 years and Habs lost a measly 5th rounder and continue the search. No biggie.</div></div>
I've seen an article somewhere stating that Edmundson was bad with Carolina because they're playing a man to man defense, in Montreal we play a zone defense scheme same as St-Louis which could be a factor that Bergevin saw. As I've said many times people need to chill with those "Awful asset management" comments, it's a damn fifth .... We still own 11 picks this year and another 11 next year, we won't be signing them all.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Jo_Habs77</b></div><div>It's really strange that Kulak doesn't seem to have a spot secured as even the 6th D, yet sometimes he's got a niche secured in the top 4 playing alonside Petry...</div></div>
Kulka seems to be the perfect 7th in the NHL, he can slide in your top four and be effective on short periods but his inconsistency makes him a seventh in my book.
