So I finally got around to actually reading about that Blues-Hurricanes trade, and it's really not as great as it sounds for St Louis. Faulk scores a lot of goals, but likely will be on the third pair in St. Louis. Edmundson is the Blues' Fistric: a guy who never scores, but doesn't give up anything either (i.e., A Wash). And giving up on Bokk just a year after drafting him ... he's one of the guys I thought the Stars should've drafted... is a major coup for Carolina down the road.

Overall, I'm not sure this trade actually makes St. Louis better in either the short term or the long term. Faulk will probably score 8 or 9 more goals than Edmundson, but allow 20+ more. Or maybe Berube will work some sort of magic on him and he'll transform into a two-way d-man.

Edmundson wasn't all that by my eyes. The extension is a big one, term and dollars, so that can definitely bite STL in the long run, but Faulk is a far better Dman than Edmundson will be, imo. Don't know anything about the prospect, Bokk, Bokk, Bokk.

Like Todd, I tried to do the same homework about this trade and it seems more that both teams got the type of player they needed. The Canes strenghtened their D with Gardiner, hence they were looking to add some toughness with a gritter like Edmunston, something they were were obviously lacking in last year's playoffs. On the other side, the Blues were looking to a goal scorer, kinda Shattenkirk in his best days, hoping he won't turn into a turnover machine.

Let's see what the prospects/picks will actually bring. Bokk is a cool name, but I prefer Koekkoek.

Edmundson is fine. He's a guy you can stick out there in limited minutes and he won'r hurt the team. Faulk is way better than Edmundson now, but that extension is going to look bad in the last few years. I believe Faulk has already started to decline.

Eventually teams will start to realize the smart thing is shorter term, more money for players like that.

Does it mean that Big Buff is no more in the Jets' plans? Cause if he returns, Winnipeg crushes the cap ceiling.
