What I am trying to say is Edler is does not fit in the number 1 category, 2 years ago in the WCF, he was playing up to his expectations, but that did not last so long.
A good Defense man is a defense man that plays good, a great defense man is a man who is consistent at playing good.

Maybe he can turn it around in the playoffs, but for now I think he plays better as our #2 or #3 guy.

I like the guy, but hes just not the guy!

anyone noticing a trend here? certain group of "fans" in cdc needs to bash our players regularly with any given chance. And once some troll started to focus on someone, A LOT of other idiots will follow and whip the same player for weeks until they find a new target.

I'm sick of the "every play who isn't on our team is better" mentality a lot of these "fans" have.

Everyone has off years / games.

I still consider Edler a potential norris candidate

I know what you're saying but it is what it is right now. So why bother being a Debbie downer.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Have you noticed Gillis has built our d-corpse as a committee? Edler doesnt have to be "the guy" he just has to contribute like he can with every other guy on the blue line.

Dude why'd you make a thread praising him then make a different thread telling everyone hes not #1?

Our defence is filled with #2 defensman if you didn't notice that then I fear for your lack of knowledge.

We are a solid at D,

even our depth guys like Barker and Alberts do a good job for the most part.

Half the clowns posting here are trolls from other teams or new to Vancouver and grew up cheering for the Laffs.

Outside of Ballards salary i would say Gillis has done a good job and our D is solid.

Edler just needs to play with a chip on his shoulder more often.

I still think they will have to dangle a substantial carrot to move Luongo and i wouldn't be surprised if its Edler if he doesnt activate beast mode soon.

by making this thread , you are expecting people to read your thread,and respond in how they feel about your comment and thread. I think Edler is just in the developement stage. AT the Same age, Chara is was not even as good as he is right now. Give it time. We have no other options but go with what we have. UFA is not an option too, as this years ufa pool for dmans is garabage. Makes me appreciate the Garrison signing more now. I was hoping Mike Gillis can trade Luongo into a top 2 pairing dman. Doesn't look like that is happening anytime soon, but a prospect with top pairing potential like a Travis Hamonic or a John Carlson will be ok.

To the OP, did you not see the tv interview with Elder just before the start of this season?
He had back surgery in the summer and was asked about his ability to play this year. Elder's response was his back is 90% of what it was before the injury. In the interview, he seemed resigned or less than optimistic to the fact that his back will never be 100% normal again. Only time will tell if at all that he'll ever fully recover from the surgery.

What I notice is that you are a seriously immature person who resorts to name calling at any opportunity. Grow up, piggy.

If you don't like differing opinions maybe you should leave the CDC. People have a right to make judgements on players all they want. In fact, the OP never insulted Edler. He stated that he didn't think he was number 1 material.

Go away piggy.

Its what, probably this time last year, when Juice was being lit up by CDC'ers? Even though he was decent for having come off of injury.

And yes, you are right, Eddie will improve. He slowly has since sticking to the team. Even so, he hasnt been as horrible as everyone makes him out to be.

His mistakes, and he has made more than he should be this season, are always fetishsized here. He makes far more solid defensive plays to make up for the boneheaded reads/plays.

But classic CDC will always magnify the negative without even complimenting the positives.
