Edler

I see everyone on here saying how Edler is going to win a norris soon and how he's so good.

I don't think he has the hockey smarts, or vision to become elite, (he can make some nice passes, but

most players in the NHL should be able to do that) he scares me as much as Bieksa in

his own end sometimes, sure hes a good d-man and he has the potential to become a top pairing d-man,

but whoever thinks he's going to become like a Shea Weber... not going to happen.

It would be different if he saw the game the same as Lidstrom and other elite d-man and his physical

tools were still developing but it's more like the other way around.

I say we ship him off with Luongo if we can, and get a real number one d-man back.

Once Edler gets his raise I'm worried he won't develop any further and just stay the same level....

This team needs a shakeup, especially if AV is here to stay.

He really needs to learn his strong points and excel at those. He's so good when he's physical, and everyone says it...yet whenever he has a great physical game he doesn't follow suit with the next game.

Edler's poor play could also fall on the fact that AV changed the pairings .

What a load of crap that is. When he played as poorly as he did, blaming it on who he was or wasn't playing with is plain stupid.

Everyone goes through slumping seasons... Sedins weren't like themselves this year, Kesler wasn't even around.. Edler wasn't himself

next year they will all come recharged and you'll be eating your words.

you can't give up on the player just because he has an offseason (one off season)

people still want raymond to stick around and that guy has had an off season every year.

He has a back injury I believe. Everyone let's jump on Edler's back because he of his poor performance! (pun intended).

So................just be a cheerleader? Besides, not crapping on every player......just Edler, Bieksa, Raymond & Malhotra. Just the ones that are over-rated and overpaid. (I'll cut Manny some slack because of the injury).

His highest point total of his career this season, most goals he has ever scored. 7th in the league in points for D men, tied with Weber. Not his best defensive season. But ya he totally sucks right, its a shame his poor playoff play this season has branded him so easily from the great almighty expectations some Vancouver fans have.

Make all the 'Raymond, Ballard, Rome have to go' threads you guys want, but moving either Edler or Kesler would be a massive mistake. CDC will rue the day either of those 2 are moved.
