YEYEYEYEYEYEYEYEY!!!!! Right about my favourite player. That's a steal of a deal too. He could get way more on the open market.

Definetly not as scary looking at holes next season with Edler locked in now.

Maybe this will entice the Sedins to stick around a little longer.

Its 20 to 50%..its probably going to be only 20% off..


They'll mark Down Lou's 50% and increase the price on Edler's 20% lol

Sweeeeet! We have the BEST defense in the NHL. And Edler is a stud. Let's hope his back doesn't give him any more trouble.

And let's hope we see BEAST mode again from Edler in the playoffs, like two seasons ago.

What is Dennis frickin' Wideman pulling down in Cowtown, $5.5m for 5 years?!

Put that into perspective.

Edit: $5.25m per for 5 years.

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

Good deal. Glad to have Edler replace Ohlund as the steady big Swede. Perhaps, he can finally get that Norris we're hoping for him.

5 Million is an absolute steal but people will complain about this deal later on, similar to how people have hated Luongo's contract if he slows down after a couple of seasons. 6 years is a great time-frame though considering he'll probably hit his prime next season or the year after that.

As for the Cap, WTF is Gillis gonna do now? Last time I checked we were about 2 or 3 million just under the cap, now with Edler's extra dollars we'll be right up against it with no room to sign an essential center.

I love how Gillis has invested so much of our cap in defence, our top-4 is now solidified for the next few seasons and defence does win championships, but we are quite imbalanced now and lacking centers badly. Not sure what's more important to win a Cup - a good defence or depth at center.

Ballard will be gone though which will be cap that Gillis will use to shore up the forwards.

Dude, are you dumb? This signing doesn't effect this year's cap in the slightest, so I don't understand what you're getting at. We are still set going forward with Hank and Kesler at centre, we just have to make it through Kesler's injury here, and even then that short-term hole can be alleviated from the return in a Luongo deal if one takes place. How can you be the least bit pessimistic about this?! This is such good news, I'm ecstatic!
