I think he will take meetings with other teams and see if anyone is willing to give him a full NMC with the expansion coming up. 

 

If no one will, he probably still signs here.

I'm pretty sure his agent just wants to talk to other teams to pump an extra year/few hundred $k/clause etc out of the Canucks.

As I said before, I'd rather see him in the rearview mirror than get handcuffed by an old, increasingly injured defenceman who wants a protection spot.

 

Edler Logic: I dont want to go to Seattle in the expansion, give me an NMC, I always want to be here. Also pay me lots, and a long deal.

 

Benning: No NMC, Deal ends before the expansion draft, we'll probably re-sign you again then assuming you haven't stopped breathing.

 

Edler: No. I leave forever. Goodbye.

good bye ol' friend ! 

 

the new era begins for canucks now, think eddie is the last 2011 player left.

Tanev?

As for Edler, he will sign a deal with us in early July, likely July first.  It will be what JB has been offering all along.  Elder wants to play here, and stay close to his family.

How unsurprising. This was predictable after Jimbo didn't complete a deal by the deadline. All leverage was gone, and Edler knew he could demand the world. We gave NMC's until Eriksson and Beagle were 37 and 38. Makes sense that he would expect the same. 

 

Best of luck wherever you go, Edler. 

 

Now we will give a NMC albatross contract to a #5 defenseman in Tyler Myers!

You just love taking slags at Benning, don't you?

I wonder if JB is more interested in Gardiner as an Eddy replacement?  Maybe we sign both Gardiner and Meyers?

Especially ones that are about as far from 'relevant' as possible.

 

If he's demanding the world, Benning is doing exactly the right thing letting him walk. Can't trade a guy who won't wave, but don't have to re-sign him if he's being unrealistic for a player his age and health.
