Canucks to begin extension talks with Edler:

It doesn’t appear labor uncertainty will keep the Canucks from doing their business.


Shortly after learning talks were underway with winger Alex Burrows on an extension, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports the club will soon begin negotiations on a new deal with defenseman Alex Edler.


“It is safe to assume we will be commencing discussions with Alex’s representative [agent Mark Stowe] in a short period of time,” Canucks assistant GM Gilman told Ziemer.


Edler’s heading into the final year of a four-year, $13 million deal that pays $3.25 million annually — the fifth-highest cap hit among Vancouver defensemen behind Kevin Bieksa and Jason Garrison ($4.6 million each), Dan Hamhuis ($4.5 million) and Keith Ballard
($4.2 million).


Given that Edler led all Canucks defensemen with a career-high 11 goals and 49 points last season, that pay scale could soon change.


The 26-year-old Swede is the youngest of the aforementioned five blueliners and finished tied for 13th in Norris voting this year with Chicago’s Duncan Keith, Phoenix’s Keith Yandle and Winnipeg’s Dustin Byfuglien.


It’s possible Edler could be eying the five-year, $28.75 million deal fellow Swedish defenseman Tobias Enstrom (27 years old) inked with the Jets a couple of weeks ago.

Great news, I want Edler locked up long term. The longer the better, 7 years @ $5 to $6 mill per year.

I think 4 years at 4.6m per is good enough for Edler. He's shown potential to be an elite defenseman, but also have lapses that can be a big deal, so signing at 4 years is safe I think.

Gillis would do very well to sign Edler for 5 years at $28.75M (identical to Enstrom's deal).

People point to Edler's inconsistency and say he should get $5M or less. The scary thing about Edler is that he's still considered inconsistent and to have untapped potential despite the fact he has shown consistent improvement throughout his career and put up 11 goals and 49 points last year.

He's already worth $6M. And I expect his best is yet to come.

No more than 5 years in case they want to trade him and about 27 million.

Thx

:towel:

Geez, I remember when Edler surprised all and made the team before Bourdon. Imagine that Luc could have been coming off his RFA contract now as well, and was the more highly touted prospect?

But yes, signing a 26 year old first time all star who has had consistent growth will be a massive positive.

Many CDC'ers project a Norris candidate. I'm not that high in my projection but I do love Edler! I doubt he will ever be big enough to push a Byfuglien from in front of the net, but can speed training and puck handling practice add the ability to rush the puck against pressure to Edler's otherwise strong repertoire? That would make him similar to Lidstrom. Still > 6 years $31.8?




If I'm not mistaken, our top 5 would all have at least 3 years left each?

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Great news. The sooner we get him locked up long-term the better. I want this deal to happen soon and I'd be willing to give him the same money as Enstrom. Definitely worth around 5.5 million, his market value would be in the 6 million range which is pretty fair too I guess. Just hoping he takes a bit of a hometown discount

And if Edler is signed we could look much more seriously at trading Ballard?

But maybe not. He was of course traded for not knowing we would get Hamhuis, and to be our puck rusher..., maybe Garrison could unlock his skills (let Tanev who is too small to be effective as a primary defensive stud but a good passer to set up Edler in offensive shifts where his size is not a problem). Here would be our roles;

5 on 5

Hamhuis / KB3 > Play all tough defensive match ups
Edler / Tanev > Primary offensive tandem
Ballard / Garrison ? multi purpose tandem.

PP

Edler / Garrison 1st unit
Hamhuis / Bieksa 2knd unit Also get Connauton some games 2knd PP, Ballard some shifts...

PK

Hamhuis / Bieksa
Edler / Garrison

Effectively Garrison/Edler and Hamhuis / Bieksa is our top 4; but we play Edler / Garrison with other guys 5 on 5 to get the best out of them. Ballard / Garrison 5 on 5 has a ton of speed, a big shot, shot blocking and size as a multi purpose unit. Maybe we would finally see his speed unleashed?

Edler will be our 4th Dman with a NTC (assuming). I hope these don't bite us in the arse in the long run.

People who think Edler will sign for 5 or less are trippin'

His open market salary would be close to 7

7 years 42M and that's WITH the hometown discount.

I'd hope for 7 years at 5.5. Lots of potential but also has the potential to be traded if a deal doesn't happen.

I agree with you but I think he will sign for 5.5 for 4 or 5 years. This was the first playoffs where Edler looks bad every other series he was one of the Canucks Best Dmans hands down.

I always forget that the NHL video games have a direct correlation to real life. I created myself in that game. Im a 99 overall. Forget Shane Doan, Gillis should be signing me for big bucks.
