(Edler - Ehrhoff or Olympics (Karlsson), and one of the better combos Garrison - Campbell)

These NTC's are going to be a pain to deal with, with all these changes that need to be made to get this team quickly back to respectability.

Well Garrison got dealt with, now time to get Edler back to his dominant self with the acquisition of Ehrhoff. :D

Unless sage knows who we can get to help out our defense for a quicker transitional game that JB wants 'umtempo' style.

We tank it and draft one of Hanifin or Kylington at the 2015 draft

Don't be bitter.
Haven't you heard? Ehrhof doesn't want to join a pretender.

Answer the question.

Rather than blow 5m$/yr on Ehrhoff, (money that could be used to uprade scoring) I'd rather go with:
Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Tanev
Sbisa - Stanton/Corrado

However, trader Jim may come up with a more meat & potatoes alternative.

So basically just let it be :lol:

Well our defense might not change at all and we can just hope for the best, it's not a bad top 6, not the worst, but I'd like to acquire a QB somehow/someway.

Pipedream will always be trying to land the elusive #1 dman, but after 20 or so years of waiting, doubt we'll ever land one. :( *depressing* ha
