<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>SupremeBone</b></div><div>I'll address your points in order:

1.) Sure, there's a press to maximise the McDrai era, but that doesn't mean they're going to throw a 1st at just anybody. They spent a 1st on Ekholm but haven't traded a 1st otherwise. No reason to think there bar suddenly dropped from a high-end veteran Dman with term to an overpaid 4th liner with term + a fringe goalie UFA that's having a good year.

2.) Care to elaborate on a.) why EDM's biggest position of need is goaltending and b.) do so while also articulating how Ned fills that need? Both Skinner and Pickard have been good to great since the coaching/systems change and, the only 'need' in this area is if they decide they'd like an established, consistent veteran who they can lean on in the event of an injury to Skinner.

3.) Yes, now connect that dot to your inclusion of Noel Acciari's 2mil cap hit.

4.) Sure, but are the other options more affordable relative to what they'd be tasked with doing (backing up Skinner)? I'd say yes. For example, I'd rather pay a 4th or 5th for Reimer than a 2nd for Ned.

5.) This doesn't change the fact that his performance this year isn't worth 2mil. Factor in that he has 2 more years at that rate, he's 32 years old, he has no consistent history of offensive production, and see point #3 and you'll grasp that, even if there exists a hypothetical team out there that might pay a 3rd for him, that team isn't EDM.

6.) And I've laid out my reasons to the contrary. I see Ned as worth around a 3rd and Acciari costing around a 3rd to dump.</div></div>

well we have different views on both of them.

Ned is not only having better numbers than the goalies you mentioned, he has them despite one of the worst defense in the recent year of the pens, sure edm defensive game wasn't great at the start of the season as well but by now has improved... not the pens one lol.

Strictly as a goaltender comparison I am positive that ned starts over skinner. now we can debate over contracts team chemistry and whatever but we aren't in the organisation so we don't know. I'd personally much rather have Ned in a 1a 1b situation (even as a 1b) than stick with the tandem you have now.

As for the acciari conversation I believe he is worth 2mil per year even if he scores 0 points. he is a machine in defense and pk. he definitely has value maybe not to edm (whose bottom 6 could need a little help and yes Acciari is an upgrade over some of those players)

I get this point "might pay a 3rd for him, that team isn't EDM." I'll just trade him to another team but overall I believe this values aren't far from what we would get if we decide to trade at the tdl
"- so I believe fair prices are a 2nd for ned and a 3rd for acciari"
