I love you MB, but this is bad. We shouldn’t be committing money to depth D like Edmundson, especially with our upcoming cap crunch. He’s not as bad as Alzner, but this isn’t a good deal, and I don’t see him as much of an upgrade over our current D-core.

Let’s just pray that Seattle somehow picks him.

Chiarot was underrated. This isn't a terrible deal, but it's not good either.

Not a fan of giving term to non top 4 on a contender dmen.

Why 4 years? I get it as a stopgap for a year or 2 until Romanov is ready for top 4 minutes but why 4 years, especially when they still have chiarot

This is a TERRIBLE DEAL. You are overpaying a bottom pair dman and we already have those in SPADES. Chiarot, kulak, Ouellett, and Fleury. This is HORRIBLE.

Surprised guess he really wanted to play in Montreal I thought he'd get at least 5 mill on the UFA market.

The legacy of GMs giving too much to UFA right acquisitions to not look stupid losing assets continues.

Alzner makes over a million more than Edmundson and they don't play similar games

That's what people said of Chiarot last year.

Now he is on the first pair. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

He won’t be as bad as Alzner, and his contract isn’t as bad. He’s a 3rd pairing defenseman, so at least he’s an NHLer. It’s a bad contract that makes things a bit tighter, but at least we aren’t paying a below average AHLer $4.6 million.

I recall a few months ago quite a controversy here on CapFriendly over whether Boston's John Moore was worth a fifth, or entirely worthless. Well, Carolina got a fifth for Edmundson, and Montreal signed him for $750,000 more, so is everyone satisfied that now we have the answer?
