My question is this:
Hypothetically if Garrison shows little chemistry with Edler, but actually players really well with Ballard what does this mean for Edler and Ballard's future with the team?
I think this is a distinct possibility as Ballard showed strong play in Florida before coming here and Garrisons strong defensive play could match well with Ballard's fast skating and puck moving skills.
Does Edler become a trade chip?
Does Edler become a 3rd pairing D man with Tanev, most likely effecting his desire to want to re-sign with the team?
Ballard has had two maligned seasons with the Canucks, but bringing in fresh blood to partner with him could change that. If he plays really well with Garrison, it means we have 2 top pairings that are signed for a minimum of 3 seasons.
