<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>DH28Hockey</b></div><div>This isn't a terrible idea but it has a few flaws. Mainly:
-We need way more help on RD than LD, and this is a huge commitment on the left side with Sanheim being young and cost controlled, and Zamula/York on the way
Actually, yeah that's the only thing but it's a big one. I think the value and basic premise is there, it's just as simple as us not being able to afford paying a LHD like that</div></div>
I don't believe this is sufficient enough deal for Arizona. Mainly because they want to recoup picks. They won't be interested in two overpaid players. Voracek is a good player, but at his age, and the fact they already have an overpriced player in Kessel, they won't be interested. Ghost wouldn't be a bad risk or anything, but I just don't see them doing it. For cap reasons we'd have to include JVR or Voracek and add picks/prospects to the deal. Obviously if its JVR, we give up better picks/prospects.
As for does it work? I agree that it would be way to much invest in the Left Side. IF we made this deal, we'd have to send Sanheim as part of a deal for a Goal Scorer so we don't have to resign him next year. Using Sanheim, Raffl + a good prospect as a framework for Ehlers is a scenario I wouldn't mind.
