Simple Question:

Will Alexander Edler sign a contract extension with the Vancouver Canucks by 11:59PM tonight or not? If he doesn't, what will the consequences be? Also, do you think Vancouver is trying to get him to sign and he just isn't agreeing on the terms?

Also, who else do you think the Canucks will sign? And when?

I just got off the phone with him, he said he and his agent are looking for 4.5 - 5.5 million for 6 years but Gillis is adamant on keeping all the Dmen's cap hits around Hammers.

10/10 thread will read again! haha jk, I thought the deadline for signing players was before 2pm today. I do think the canucks have been trying to sign Edler, seeing how he is our number 1 dman, but maybe he feels they are low balling him because of his playoff performance this year and refuses to sign a contract under a certain number of yrs/money. Who really knows whats going on behind the scenes, I just hope he stays a canuck for a long time, or someone seriously overpays for him and we come out a better team.

The 2pm thing is the recommended time for contracts to be submitted to ensure they get processed under the current CBA (which expires tomorrow night). If they're submitted later, they could still get approved but it's just not as likely. There might be a few more contracts that get submitted though.

No more than 5.1 mil for 5 years. I don't see him signing for any less than 4.6 but who knows maybe we get lucky and he takes a discount to be on a good team.

Ok thanks, wasnt 100% sure on that topic, I dont see Edler signing before tomorrow, im thinking he may try to test out free agency like Ehrhoff did and get a ridiculous contract. Hope im wrong and he stays loyal, but every player isn't in it just to stay loyal to the team that drafted them.
