I choose Burrows over Edler because if Edler doesn't sign, Ballard can step right in. If Burrows doesn't sign, our top 6 is done, simple as that; and Burrows is much more consistent than Edler.

I says: " PAAAAARDON?!"

I'll risk getting a warning from a mod over this.

You have the intelligence of a garden tool.

Exaggeration you doorknob. :picard:

i chose burrows
edler is the better player but he would also bring a much higher return on the trade market and i would say burrows is the heart and soul of the vancouver canucks

Prefer Edler. Way younger and good dmen are harder to come by. Love Burrows, but he would be easier to replace. On the other hand, the post above me is right about trade value. I suspect that Burrows is far more valuable to the 'Nucks than any other team. Would rather keep them both.

Made a big list of the pros/cons of trading each of them. Had to go with Edler in the end, but the one thing that really stood out was it would be absolutely infuriating to play against Burrows. That scares me more then a little.


Lord Peaches' gut is telling him that the drunken fool, aka Dral, is 100% mafia.


Dral is 100% mafia or I will masteb_ _ _ _ a cow and like it


Vig kill dral he never talks like this when he's not mafia.

Just trade Luongo and sign em both!

Jensen > Kassian
Gillis dropped the ball on the Hodgson trade.
If Kassian ever becomes a 30 goal scorer I will pierce my nipples.

He's the fire for our team. He is the perfect teammate the Sedin's have ever had. When the 2nd lines not doing well, he goes on their and makes them click. If the 3rd lines not doing well, he'll make them click too. Phenomenal penalty killer, agitator, scorer, and he's got the best go-to penalty shot move in the NHL. Guys a key part to the team in the locker room / always cheers guys up, and he always gives it his 100%.

I choose Burrows over Edler because if Edler doesn't sign, Ballard can step right in. If Burrows doesn't sign, our top 6 is done, simple as that; and Burrows is much more consistent than Edler.

Would've expected this from someone whose name has "Sedin" in it :P
To be honest though,

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 also disagree with your argument that Ballard can "step right in" while "the top 6 is done" if Burr doesn't re-sign. Burr and the Twins can both survive without playing with each other but as mentioned at least part of his success has to be attributed to the Sedinery that his linemates conjure game in, game out. Matter of fact is, the Twins can make anyone become a scorer (Anson Carter ring a bell?) and while Burr is solid there are many other contributors up front who can at least alleviate some of the loss. Unless Eddie gets traded for another D-man (wouldn't mind Kulikov) I'll have to say keep him over Burr (Love them both though!).

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

2012, meet Matthew 24:36-47!
