EDLER!!! Hopefully he stops making silly plays and becomes even more elite so he can fight for Norris.

Royal Canuck 02-04-2013 06:15 PM

Alex Edler.

OgoBoHo 02-04-2013 06:17 PM

How many of these polls are we going to keep doing?

Anyways, Edler for me.

My name says it all.

But I gota give some love to Dan Hamhuis as well

Tanev.

The only one I trust. -_-

VinnyC 02-04-2013 06:30 PM

Salo... owait

Tanev.

Kevin Bieksa. Love his pugnacity as much as his skill, and he's scored some pretty clutch goals for us. And he's a character in the media.

ARSix 02-04-2013 06:34 PM

Hamhuis is one of the most underrated defensemen in the league. This play sums him up perfectly.

He picks off a pass, and under pressure from the opposing forward, executes a no-look backhanded 3-foot-high saucer outlet pass that springs Hodgson on a breakaway for the tying goal. The response? "HODGSON HODGSON HYPE HYPE HYPE". Hamhuis gets zero credit.

Maybe by fans of other teams. He gets his fair share of hype from Canucks fans for being everybody's favourite good ol' BC boy...and a great defenseman.

Cam Barker :yo:
Seriously though, Hammy.

rypper 02-04-2013 06:51 PM

This season my vote goes to Keith "hipcheck the coaches hate away" Ballard.

Velociraptor 02-04-2013 07:08 PM

Edler, favorite player on the team since Cody was dealt. HM's to Hammer and Bieksa.

I'd pick Bieksa as well if he always played like did in the 2011 playoffs. Probably would not be possible to maintain but he was such a beast.

My pick for now is Dan Hamhuis.

ditto on both accounts

Flik 02-04-2013 07:29 PM

Edler, it's been an absolute treat watching him grow with the team.

Hamhuis is a close second though. I love players that quietly kick ass.

Winroba 02-04-2013 07:57 PM

Tanev because I trust him the most... and I want to be friends with him

ARSix 02-04-2013 08:08 PM

Edler is just way too high-event for me. He contributes to winning games, but has on occasion lost them pretty much singlehandedly and did so twice in the LA series. End to end rushes and big slappers make for fancy highlights but you need the total package and until he consistently plays reliably I can't call him a #1 defenseman in this league.

+ 1

Still surprised more people don't like Bieksa.

I didn't think Garrison would only have one vote. :laugh:


I guess I didn't help by voting Ballard. ;)

CanuckLuck 02-04-2013 08:30 PM

Edler is the obvious choice because of the simple fact that he's our best defensman; however, I like Bieksa the most because of his personality off the ice and his toughness on the ice. I see Bieksa as the face of our defense..a real likable personality. And because of this I think Bieksa will be a mainstay in the Canucks organization for a very long time, even when he retires.

Fraser Read 02-04-2013 08:30 PM

Hamhuis is the best. Edler is the flashiest. Bieksa is my favorite.

He's been around for less than a year, it's hard to really get to know a player in that time especially when most of that time was spent in lockout. Ballard has had time to grow on people, so have all our other D.

Even Alberts... ;)
