Personally I can't see Edler's absence (in the event that he isn't re-signed) having the same effect as the absence of Markstrom, Tanev, and Stecher. That's me though. 

Totally agree, but my argument isn’t so much just about the presence as it is about mitigating and navigating change and room dynamics. His deal should be no more than 1yr at 1.5max. Anything more than that and it’s an overpayment.

definition of insantiy isn't it? 

 

doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result? 

 

Its not really the same thing if our D-core has any measure of growth. Rathbone was looking

great and Hughes is going to take another step factor in Juolevi and no, im sorry its not the same

at all.

Cheap deals would be nice. Otherwise no. 

Why?  Who are you going to fill those spots with for cheap?

Always need Depth on D and those 2 are very reliable depth defensemen

Although Hamonic has stated that he wants to be here he has advised his agent to open up the talks to all NHL teams. So that tells me that they are looking for the best deal. He won’t come cheap. 

Perhaps not, but I believe he'd still be more inclined to work with the Canucks than someone who wasn't familiar with the team, organization, and city. Agent is gonna do everything he can to get Hamonic the best deal, that's why Hamonic pays him.

We still need to add a RH defencemen even if these guys are signed 

Myers

Hamonic

Schmidt

Thats our right side.  No need to sign anyone other than Hamonic.

if that was true they would have signed already.

Is it wise to sign before the ED, or can Seattle Select them regardless?

Prefer to see Schmidt on the left side.

Hughes Hamonic

Schmidt Myers
Edler/Rathbone - UFA/Trade

 

Extra: Joulevi.

 

You got to consider injuries. Especially if a Righty goes down.

 

And we will need 2 defencemen if Schmidt is traded imo
