Happy Birthday, Alexander Edler!

I am not of the Edler basher club and, although he has his moments, know he is an important part of this club.  Wishing him the very best.  Going to be weird for him carrying on without the twins and hope he has a great season next year despite the huge hole.

still a youngin'

has a couple more years of hard minutes in him for sure - which will be great for Juolevi to develop in behind.

 

HBD Alex.

Sorry you're losing your countrymen the the Hall of Fame - your turn to lead quietly.

 

Really like Edler.  He was great in our contending years - tracking as a Norris candidate before the serious back injuries.

 

Has played hard minutes - and been ridden like a mule at times (particularly by the Torture-fella types) - but he's really held the blueline together, even when he wasn't on top of his game. 

 

When he is though, he can be a force - and with the right partner, he's highly effective.  Will be interesting whether he pairs up with a pmd in the future - he's always thrived with puck movers - or whether he pairs with a shutdown guy again (he and Tanev have always been highly serviceable - and he looked pretty gud with Gudranson this year as well). 

He may have been a primary rething player to bring back assets - but I'm also happy to still have him here - he's a great stablilizer on a transitioning team.

I'm pretty sure someone on the Canucks team does these for every player on their birthdays. But it wouldn't surprise me if Vintage could do that too.

Every time I want to get mad at Edler I try to remind myself that it is management's fault for building a team that requires guys to play more than what they're capable of. 

 

If the Sedins are two of the greatest people in the world, and they speak really highly of Edler, then people should pay attention to what he means to the team.

Happy birthday, Eagle! :towel: He's actually a bit younger than I thought he was.
