The Price Tag for Matias Ekholm is crazy high. We saw that clearly in the blog where you all tried to make a trade for him. Not only is he the best D-man potentially available, but he is on a very reasonable contract with one year to go AFTER this season...
There are at least half a dozen teams who feel they have Cup aspirations, but only one of them will get to add Ekholm...
The next alternative....Defenseman David Savard in Columbus. Savard is slightly more expensive and on an expiring contract....but he is very good and extremely underrated...Savard is one of those players that teams love to add at the deadline. A top 4, two-way D.
And Savard plays the Right D...as opposed to Ekholm on the Left... That is a big plus when considering Savard..
What's the Buzz?
Would you attend a game in a full arena?
There has been a lot of talk lately about teams opening back up for full attendance...The virus is slowing in some ways and places, while raging in other places with new variants that are more contagious....The Vaccine is rolling out faster, but are we getting too complacent too fast?
