      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

I'm curious about how the Canucks value Edler. There's 29 other teams that are lining up and some even willing to give insane offers for the young defense man. While, I think Gillis and company are still pondering those offers. Detroit and Philly are notables looking for their number 1 defense man. Since he's a Canuck, the team question about his inconsistencies, but at the same time hockey as a whole, know that even with Edler's inconsistencies that he is still one of the brightest young defense man in the league today.

There's already three defense man that are already locked up - Hamhuis, Garrison, and Bieksa. Ballard, also has a big contract, but whether he is movable, we don't know. Now, we're all assuming Edler is going to get a big payday, so you have to wonder if the Canucks would rather go for someone else, maybe a player that in "their" eyes that is more consistent or perhaps, a few younger players and a cheaper top four that may be enough for them.

Detroit is desperate. Would not be surprised the slightest bit if Detroit goes all in, if Brendan Smith and Johan Franzen are part of a package to lure Edler. How could Vancouver not consider it?

and don't get this post out of context. I don't want Edler traded, and if he were indeed traded, I think I'd consider jumping wagons.

Edler has Erhoff disease. Getting easy points on the PP with the Sedins makes him think hes worth 6 million bucks a year. The other possibility is he doesnt want to play here anymore.

I would sign Edler for 6 years at 34.5 million.

Edler will be the teams star defensemen if he isn't all ready. He will be the leader of the defensemen like Hamhuis and Bieksa are now, but even more so.

Lock him up long-term, he deserves to be the highest paid D-man on our team.

Sorry but no chance.

Edler likely gets us Gudbranson.

But if Florida wouldn't give up Bjugstad for Lu, why would they give up Bjugstad, a 1st, and Matthias for Lu and a 2nd?

Much more consistent? You have to consistently watch them on a nightly basis, which I doubt you do, to even make that statement. Subban being a perfect example of this: Over the last two seasons since PK has only been around that long .. he is not more physical than Edler, isn't as much of a shot blocker as Edler, hasn't tallied as many points as Edler and is a massive giveaway machine in comparison. So, he's better how, exactly? Because he shows more flash? Yeah, that's worked out so well for PK at times.

Edler is inconsistent and doesn't deserve 5.5 or more. Yea he is our best blue line point producer, but he isn't a star dman that deserves that much. Dmen like Duncan Keith, Kronwall, Myers, Carlsson, Subban, and others, are much more consistent than Edler, and giving him their type of money (Talking about Keith essentially as he gets just above 5.5) doesn't make sense. He hasn't yet been able to shine above the rest like how the players listed above have, and I personally think he's overvalued on our team, though he is a solid dman, just not worth 5.5
