trading edler would be foolish move.
Even though edler messed up in the playoffs, its hard to not see what he brings to the table: strong defence, decent offence, good size, and good head for the game. If they trade edler they are idiots. Trade bieksa, he pushes opponents on top of our goalies and is definitely not as good as edler in all aspects of the game. Plus hes old....

One minute CDC says MG is the best GM, now CDC has turned on MG.
One minute CDC says AV is a good coach, then a bad coach who doesn't give underperformers a fair shake and wants him gone.
Now we have Torts, CDC doesn't have much good to say...you would almost think that they want him traded for AV.
CDC wants bold moves but then they insist that MG give the players away for nothing (eg Luongo).
Cmon CDC....take your hormone shots and quit whining!

Well this is a situation where he can ask for the moon and not regret it. If we dont trade him, we keep a 50 point D man , if we trade him for the moon, we get value in return worth more than a 50 point dman, whats the problem?

I think the problem is that Vancouver is right up against the cap with only 17 players signed. If MG doesn't move some contracts the team may be forced to buy out players just so they can ice a full roster. Other GM's know this and will certainly take advantage of this.

Trading Edler and Schneider frees up $9 million (minus anything coming back) - that would go a long way to solving this situation.

Kesler was lucky to score 20 this year since the injury to Morrison allowed him to do so.

I doubt Kesler would ever break 15 goals in his career again.

If edler goes then I guess Ballard stays. How many d men can Gillis keep giving up. Salo/Erhoff/Sulzer/Connauton and possibly Edler now.

I'm really getting lost as to what MG is trying to do.

People who think Edler will suck with Tortorella make up the stupidest reasons.

Edler played as a puck mover when he doesn't have the speed to be a puck mover, of course he is going to look bad. I've said that since Ehrhoff left, the team put too much pressure on Edler to put up Ehrhoff type points. Tortorella will hopefully find the strengths of the players and give them proper roles that work in their advantage. He's made everyone of his D in the Rangers look fantastic. Even, Anton Stralman looked good defensively and people are using "guts" and Edler being "quiet" as reasons that he wouldn't gel with Tortorella? Man oh Man, people are so blind.

Teams around the league still see Edler has a potential number 1 and at 5 Million per year, It's an absolute steal. The only reason, and I'm totally against trading Edler is the fact that Gillis has screwed himself up by giving everyone on D a NTC and therefore, the Canuck's cap is screwed. Canucks get a hell lot easier to play against without Edler.

That is the most sense I have read in at least 2 weeks. Put Hamhuis on the LD for the 1st PP and get Edler refocused on a more defensive role. I never thought playing Edler 27 minutes a game made sense either. At least not while he was struggling.

The two bolded are patently false although i do agree that trading Bieksa and re-tooling that way is a better idea.

Canucks trading one of their younger D-Core who happens to produce 40+ pts a season. Um no.

Say what want about Alex Edler but Canucks will have a huge hole on Defense if they do this unless they actually want to commit with Ballard or a Top 4 in FA.

They don't understand that there are 29 other teams in the NHL trying to win as well.

No your dumb. Give up one Allstar already and the other will be for sure one day for McKinnon? This does not make us better now and makes Colorado so much better now. Not a bright idea

I really hope the Canucks don't trade Edler, for as bad as some people want him gone. 50 point dman are rare and the ablity that Edler has would be a big mistake in my eyes anyways.


Have you not watched him play in the last 2 years? Elite Dmen bounce back after sub par years. They don't have back to back stinkers. Get rid of him for a couple of high end prospects or a third line centre and pick. Use the available cap to sign Jonathon Blum.

TSN just asked Gillis about Eddie and Gillis said he had no more cap issues so the Edler trade is less of an issue now.

That Luongo contract really took precedence only a few years after it was signed.

Every negotiation starts with one side asking for a high price. That's how negotiation works.

Why would Gillis start off by asking a fair price?

He wants to see if there's a team out there that's desperate enough to overpay for Edler. If all he gets are fair prices, we're beter off keeping Edler.


One of our 4.5 - 5 million dollar defensemen needs to go.
