Well fortunately the majority of my arguments were made before this news was made open to the public. Unless you can claim that you know someone in Canucks management directly, and they gave you this information before hand... then you can't say that Edler's injury prone. When there are clauses in deals, they usually take down the value if teams have to negotiate with the player before the deal even goes through. You can recover from injuries, or else Daniel Sedin is worthless since he has a broken foot, Kesler should be traded for a 3rd round pick. We should have given up a first round pick to get rid of Salo, and Hamhuis should be waived, since you know he was injured in the Boston vs Vancouver final.


I never knew this at all. I just brought it up when I read about it. You are correct, you can recover from injuries, however, he has already had back surgery once. Now another back injury. This is a bad sign. Bad enough that a long term is out of the question, let alone one that pays him 6 mil or more per season. Now that he has re-occuring back problems, I fully advocate trading him. Of course, this just makes moving him all that more problematic. This team does not to re-write the Salo story all over again. So talented, now if he can only stay healthy. Been there done that.

I think Edler will regret not signing a long term deal before the CBA expired. Salaries will come down significantly and UFA age might go up. Of Course it all depends on how much Edler was being offered. I assume he was offered around $5 to $5.5 per year. I don't see him getting any more than that after seeing how serious the owners are with the CBA negotiations.

Even if he gets the same amount its a net loss for Edler. He could already have the extension in his back pocket so he would have piece of mind and even bigger thing is the contract would be guaranteed in case of injury gets worse.

Maybe he was injured before the start of the lockout; and terms are agreed subject to his recovery?

It wouldn't matter because any unregistered agreement would be subject to the new CBA which will likely be more restrictive.

Pretty sure that Poile didn't sign either an NTC or and NMC for Weber, so saying he is locked up is misleading.

Now why Poile didn't sign either is anyone's guess but obviously speaks to the idea that he intends to trade Weber with a year or two.

I guess then Luongo has an NTC so MG will never have any intention of trading him. Oh wait...

To say he's "locked up" isn't misleading. Weber signed a very long contract. If that doesn't mean he's locked up, then I don't know what is. Even if Poile decides to trade him as you've speculated, how are we going to get him? Oh right..we can't.
