Ignore Eklund. Maybe Nonis has received a few calls about Ohlund/Mitchell but I think it's fairly obvious he isn't moving any of our defenceman (except maybe Krajicek) at this point I'd say Bourdon and Edler are untouchable too
Do you think they would move Krajicek Level ??? Interesting observation ... he is pretty young and really improved over the course of the year ... like to hear your thoughts on that.
My reasoning is this:
Krajicek is a young and moderately talented puck-moving defenceman, but realistically I think he'll cap out as a #4/5 guy working the 2nd PP unit. I admit Krajicek improved steadily as the season went on and seemed fairly comfortable stepping into a greater role with our blueline injuries in the playoffs. That is not to say, however, that he's ever going to amount to much. His shot is extremely lacking, and when he's not paired with a solid defensive defenceman he's a train-wreck in his own end (Who can forget the Krajicek-Fitzpatrick fiasco).
He does have some talent though, and I'm sure some teams are interested in him. Ohlund, Salo, Mitchell and Bieksa are all locked up long term, and in the case of the first three NTCs are also a factor, so they won't be going anywhere soon. Add to that Edler and Bourdon looking to worm their way onto the team, and you have a logjam at defence.
Why not trade him for scoring help if the need arises? He is easily our most expendable defender, and team looking to add some offence from their back end would love to have a guy like him. You have to give to get, and Krajicek looks like our most attractive trading chip that isn't a prospect. I'm not saying that Nonis is TRYING to move Krajicek, but if the right trade is on the table I'm sure he won't hesitate to make the deal.
I'd say realistically our current window to win the cup expires when all of our defenceman's contracts start expiring (not to mention Luongo), so why not trade some youth for some experience? I don't care if we miss the playoffs ten years running if we win a stanley cup just once. And that's the ultimate goal is it not?
