I say Edler. With the exception of the LA series, it seems he has always 'upped' his game in the playoffs for the past few years. Hamhuis is obviously a close second.

Edler, Tanev, conditional two firsts, Schroeder for weber and C. Wilson

Edler is cheaper for Nashville and Weber doesn't want to play there anymore. C.Wilson is not a coach favourite but offers the Canucks more scoring and grit.

Lol actually can pick anywhere he wants to play and chooses the oilers out of all team. He picked one of the worst teams in the past 5years to play for.

If I were him I would have stayed in Anaheim. Warm weather, beautiful women....But he would rather play in Edmonton lol hahah

I can't believe a few people voted "not one standout" when a team out there would love to have the defence we have right now. Yeah, we might need a signing this off-season but if you look at the names in our D, other teams would drool to have them all on the same team.

This planet is whacked.

We don't have one standout but people make it sound like that is a bad thing. Having a "Norris candidate defenseman" is overrated and not necessary. Why have 1 standout when you can have many that step up at different times.

Look no further than New Jersey last year not having a Norris defenseman and getting to the Cup Finals.

Nashville will be wanting to trade Weber sooner than later as they won't want to lose him for nothing like say "SUTER".

This why I don't think we can take a big contract back in a Luongo trade. We need the cap space for Weber!

Enterin I am a fan born and live in Vancouver and it's the vast amount of you local brats who ruin everything for hockey fans. This town doesn't deserve a winning team with all the know-it-alls talking smack all day long media or fans.

We got within one game with an extremely injured team and without your precious "Norris candidate defenseman." If we would have won, you would all be singing a different tune. Quit thinking that winning the Stanley Cup is that simple and easy.

I think the top need is a solid player who compliments Edler well. It doesn't have to be a star, just somebody that can move the puck and be responsible defensively.

That will allow Edler to emerge as the #1 guy we all want to see. He has the tools, but has never really had the right partner to flourish.

We're not getting Schultz, so let's start moving on. Although my pride is hurt, I can see why he would want to sign elsewhere. With Bieksa, Hamhuis, Edler and company he's not coming in as "The Guy". In a place like Edmonton, there is no pressure to win whatsoever. I digress.

That being said, is Garrison therefore really our best option? He played in Florida in a weak division, had a lot of PP time and played alongside Bryan Campbell. Some sources say he will be grabbing upwards of 5 million. Is this really the best option for the Canucks? Having a roster full of number 2,3,4 defense has notched us back to back President's Trophies, but not the illusive Stanley Cup.

In fact, you can go back throughout the entire history of the organization, and we have never had a number 1 defenseman. If the Canuck's all time best defensemen debate is between Mattias Ohlund and Jyrki Lumme, is this not one of the glaring reason's we still do not have a Cup?

Look at the past few Stanley Cup winners... LA, Boston, and Chicago have all had their top defensemen play like top defensemen en route to a Cup win. Who would you say has been our best defensemen over the past 5 playoff runs? (or lack thereof)

OK, I'm cooled off.

The Canucks know they need a genuinine number one defenseman. Not much in UFA, so they will have to do it through a trade but you know they will have to give up something to get something.
