Zero issue with this, the team has 3 NHL defensemen under contract. Edler is severely underrated and is still a serviceable veteran. Hamonic would be a bonus and that still leaves room for the team to add depth for the upcoming season. I bet you see an immediate shift in utilizing the defense with Shaw on board as well.

Yeah I agree. Plus, the defensive improvement can be made by moving Schmidt, and bringing in another stay at home guy like Oleksiak. 
Hughes, Myers, Edler, Hamonic, Oleksiak, Rathbone. Juolevi gets another year to play somewhat sheltered minutes, then takes over for Edler. 

Re-signing Hamonic and Edler is the right move, both will give us better value than replacing them.

It's the only way I'd do it. We should be moving on from this same tired old D core.

Hamonic was not part of the same old D core. He came in on a cheap 1 year deal and after his early injury, IMHO, played really steady.

If Edler is above 3M 

Not good cap wise. We need a bona-fide big hitter back there. Lot of ufa options towards that. 

There really is no rush to sign Edler. He wants to stay here. 

Just like Tanev?

Thing is, Hamonic is Hughes' D partner in the top pairing. Why shouldn't he be paid?  

 

Edler on the other hand, is more of a 7th Dman, and should only be used sparingly. I hope they don't overpay, but that's what I suspect. I can see a  "thank you for your years of service" contract, full NMC lol

Aight, Eddie, our loyalty has been amazing, and so has yours. Now, please sign a loyalty team-friendly twilight deal to end your career with us: 2 years @  $3m total AAV 1.5. 

 

Hamonic, 2 years @ $2m per. 

 

Thanks,

 

Canucks Fans

If Edler can do us a solid and do a Spezza like contract that would be amazing! League minimum. 

Edler>Spezza

Edler $950k or look elsewhere.

Hamonic: $2.25 million, and see what the player and agent say. 

 

Agree 100% with Hamonic 

 

Edler at 1.5 is respectful and managable for 1 year

I think/hope this is a sign that JB is trying to pkg out Schmidt for something else that’s favourable.  I like the player but I really don’t think he fits into the team culture that well, especially coming from Vegas where it’s more like a frat club mentality. He’s a good locker room guy for the right locker room though.

 

Also read something silly this morning that the Habs have reached out on the price to acquire JT Miller. There was a tweet from some fella employed by NHL central scouting about it. Haven’t included the link because it’s not a legit resource.
