Happy Birthday Alex! Will love you forever. Coming from a straight guy - but if the opportunity came I might consider changing teams for Eddie :P

You'd think for being our #1 Franchise d-man he'd receive more love from the fans? After his 3 year ELC @ 550K ended, he started being scapegoated by a portion of the fan base if you ask me. This group among our fanbase absolute loves to nit pick any player making anything more than 3 mill...

 

Alex has always been playing top minutes for the us. If you watch any team 82 games a year, you'll notice their top d-man often make mistakes... it's just the nature of the position. If they make a mistake its magnified... That's what happens when you're playing top minutes and you're the center of attention.

 

Overall they are still trusted over and over again because they know how to drive the play. Sir Alex has certainly been a master of driving the play for us...

 

Dear Fan Base, Canucks hockey will be back on TV before we know it. It won't include 18,000 fans but hey at least the Panthers wont feel left out anymore right?

 

When hockey resumes in July or August, lets just focus on the good parts of our players games. We have a large enough fan base to change the energy behind any sports franchise. We just have to unite.

 

If you actually watch Alex play... expect to see the good parts of his game, you'll realize why the Canucks have kept him for this long. He does a lot of right things and is an absolute stud back there for us. 

 

The guy took team friendly term and AAV because he loves this city that drafted him and he wants to win here. He WILL win here.

 

Anyways that was a long rant... love and positivity to all! :P

Can't agree more Apollo! I went to the Canucks and Blackhawks game in January, and I sat at the zone where the Blackhawks shoots twice, aka. where the Canucks defend twice. I notice how much puck battle Edler wins in the corners just to help us clear the zone in the PK and he is really smart all around the game. Problem with him the last few seasons was lack of depth and he was asked to do too much. His offensive point total also depends heavily on the quality of forward he is playing with. It is no secret Edler is having a much better year both offensively and and defensively stat wise this season because the Canucks have more skilled top 6 players he can pass the puck to as well as the added depth of Quinn Hughes and Tyler Myers made both him and Tanev's job a lot easier.

 

And also, Edler plays the game like a gentleman, unlike some guy who looks like Mr. Bean who wears a red jersey and just flops around diving and kneeing opposing player when he can.
