I saw this on another website, and it was a tough choice to make for me.

the question is: If due to cap reasons, you could only sign one "Alex", which Alex would you sign?

Remember this is realistic as both of their contracts are ending in the next season, so which one would you prefer to have stick around on the Canucks, please give reasons after vote. Thanks

Hmm, tough one. As much as I like Alex "Clutch" Burrows, I'm going with Alex Edler. Our defence was terrible last year and don't want to get it worse without Edler in the line-up. Also, Edler is also 5 years younger than Burrows. I believe Burrows can be replaced with Kassian, Jensen, Schroeder etc. all still young and have the potential to be top 6 forwards.

Burr gotta be Burr he's the better playoff performer. Not to knock Eddie hes had some good series but Burr has consistently stepped it up.

Love Burrows, but we don't have anyone that could replace what Edler does for us. We do have younger options who are coming into their own that could replace what Burrows does.

Eddie because even though burr is great we have good depth on forwards (of course we could be better). I don't see great depth on defence, alberts is o.k for a 7th man but not for full time duties (assuming we dont sign/trade for a defence)

I personally think both are overrated on CDC, Edler might be a 50 point defenseman, but he, at times, is very weak defensively. With Edler, one has to factor in his potential. Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike him, but those who say he DESERVES $5M+ are just being homers. He could very well get that much on the open market, but that doesn't mean he's worth that much.

Burrows on the other hand, I think he is one of the best third liners in the league. When playing with the Sedins, he plays like a first liner. But given that he needs the Sedins to be a 25+ goal scorer, I wouldn't give him more then $3.75M.

At the end of the day, what it comes down to is who wants what. Everyone knows Burrows is willing to take less to play here then he would get as a free agent somewhere else. Edler on the other hand might pull an Ehrhoff and go to some city where he feels like he can "win a cup".

@Peevish

Last year he played GREAT with:

Ryan Kesler- PK

RK and David Booth- 2nd line

Pahlsson-Hansen- played on 3rd for 4-5 games

Your argument is invalid

Edler is younger and has a high ceiling.

Burr. We can sign him for less and trade Edler for more.

depends on the money they are looking for. I would say Edler, but if he's looking for too much like he could get on the free market, then either let him go or trade him mid season.
