<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>tryger</b></div><div>Roy is already a shutdown RD, he is who we are looking to pair with. This is why an offensive threat like Chychrun was seen as the best option as the 2nd pair LD.
Edmundson would be a great eventual replacement for Edler, but the Kings are (1) not in a must-win window worth trading away a 1st, (2) playing Durzi on as the LD2 has provided better offensive upside, he is just more of a defensive liability and takes some dumb penalties as a young puck-moving defenseman, (3) the Kings would need to move Walker's contract and he still has value and plays LD as well.
Overall Edmundson would be nice, but the Kings can't afford him, are not in a position to be spending 1st rounders as a team not locked into the playoffs, and Edmundson doesn't address what the Kings are looking for (a dynamic LD who is good offensively as well as defensively).</div></div>
Have to agree with that sentiment overall kings dont need to overspend at the deadline. There's only going to be a handful of teams willing to pay the price for Edmundson, as we saw last year with Florida there will be a few teams that feel like they are all in this year when the deadline comes, and the hab's will be patient and wait it out till they get the price they want.
I think caufield probably gonna get another mil on top of that if he continues to score at this pace. Sverson is interesting, would be a solid addition the money is reasonable just not sure of his interest in mtl. I think Xhekaj is going to be remaining up, not sure what seasoning he needs as he has played very well so far, hes a bottom pairing dman and brings something that no one else on the team does. I'm not sure Edmundson is a hab next season, I have long thought that the intention was to keep him to provide a vet presence for the young dman, but with how well Ghule has played and with Matheson term left on his contract i think Edmundson is the one who will be moved.
I wouldve loved to see Taraseko in a habs Jersey, 4 or 5 years ago, but i dont think they will be going out and signing a winger, they should be staying true to the rebuild which means you dont want to further jam the roster up, Roy and Beck probably both ready to step in next season and Farrell isnt too far behind, think they would be better off allowing those players to grow instead of trying to be competitive next season.
