Edler For Eriksson. Would you do it?

28 posts in this topic

I'm usually pretty against proposals all together, but this is one possibility that is hard not to discuss. Sounds like a trade that would be one of the better "Hockey Trades" compared to what has happened in the passed.

When it comes to general value this may be even but Edler is worth more to us at this point.

45~ point guy who can play both PK and PP logging 20+ mins a game, we can't just give someone like that up.

I love Eriksson, he's very underrated, but finding good D-men is a lot harder than finding good forwards.

Don't need another Swedish finesse forward. Edler is an amazing defenseman.

I wouldn't do it, as much as I like Loui.

I would say that finding legit #2 defensemen are harder to find than finesse wingers, although Eriksseon is very good.

He's good for 70~ish points a season, with anywhere from 25-30 goals per season on average. He's the real deal, but I still don't think I'd make this trade.

I'd do it. Eriksson with the Sedins would be a killer line. He can easily get 40 goals a season that way!

Honestly, our forwards are great, while Eriksson would be nice Edler is a big part of our defensive core. I love Edler and I think he should stay!

Killing our D depth just for another scoring forward? I thought we had a logjam of scoring guys, and needed some third line grit.

Not comfortable with these D pairings:

Hamhuis-Bieksa

Ballard-Garrison

Tanev-???

Ballard, as much as I want to love him, has not played like a top 4, and to make Tanev the anchor of the third pairing is dangerous.

perfect response! how many defenceman were chosen in the top 10 at this years draft? 8. 80% of the top 10 were defenceman. teams realize that defense is the most important part of the game. and that other than a bonified number one goalie a number one defenceman is the most valuable position.

The twins with Eriksson would be sick swedish line but i wouldn't do it because it would take an intergrel part out of our defence and if we had Eriksson with the twins then MG might have to let Burr walk next summer.

Not a bad deal.

See if we could work out a good contract with Edler first, if it seems like he may want a bit more than we want to give him, then I would be very open to making that trade.

lol at the people who say we have enough scoring. I suggest that you go back and look at our last 2 playoffs series if you think the Canucks have enough scoring haha

I'd probably do Edler+Raymond for Eriksson+Fistric. Eriksson would make our 2nd line a legit threat.

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows

Eriksson - Kesler - Booth

Higgins - Lapierre - Hansen

Volpatti - Malhotra - Kassian

Hamhuis - Bieksa

Ballard - Garrison

Fistric - Tanev

Not bad.

I would do it in a heartbeat. Win now. We need:

- top 6 scoring

we have:

- Garrison and Ballard to take up Edler's offensive contributions

- a collection of D-men, namely Alberts, Connauton and Sauve, who can step up

- there are some decent 3rd pair D still in free agency

- trading Luongo could also get us our defensive cover

It's a yes from me.

Since Dallas traded James Neal and Matt Niskanen for Alex Goligoski I'd feel slightly unsatisfied with an Eriksson return straight up for Edler.  

I'd do a Alex Edler for Loui Eriksson and Patrick Nemeth/Ludvig Bystrom.
