Mike Gillis will be considered a great GM by the end of this season.

illogic 10-10-2008 12:51 PM

Holy ****! That was unexpected. Good job locking up part of defensive core Gillis! :handclap:

Hedberg 10-10-2008 12:51 PM

Nice. Hopefully the money is reasonable.

Vancouver, B.C. – Vancouver Canucks General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that the club has signed defenceman Alex Edler to a four-year contract extension through the 2012-13 NHL season. Edler enters his third season as a Vancouver Canuck.

Towelie* 10-10-2008 12:53 PM

Awesome! Hopefully it is for around 3-4 million per.

State of Hockey 10-10-2008 12:55 PM

Horrible length. He'll be a UFA as soon as possible.

Burlington Bomb 26 10-10-2008 12:55 PM

Edler will be good for many years to come. Good job by Gillis.

better then getting poached via rfa offers.

Wicked news!

I'm guessing 3-3.5 mil per year.

If you haven't noticed our defensemen have a tendency to hang around for under-valued contracts.

My guess too.

Rotang 10-10-2008 01:00 PM

Assuming it will be for between $2-3M because it doesn't buy out any years of free agency. Keeps him in a Canuck uniform for the next 5 seasons. Great job Gillis!

I don't think Dave's bosses would be very happy that he's still negotiating contracts for the Canucks.

Nikita Filatov* 10-10-2008 01:01 PM

Don't really like the years, but depending on the mosey this could be a great deal.

What does Nonis has to do with this?

Then sign him to a 3 year or 5+ year deal. Anything but 4.

That's a lot of uncertainty to bank on there.

If you treat your players right, there is no reason to believe that Edler won't sign an extension in 3 years.

Whatever. The Canucks never have problems re-signing the free agents they want to keep.

If you're worried about losing core guys like to unrestricted free agency, your franchise is probably a disaster already (see Florida; Minnesota).

Look at Ohlund, Salo, and Bieksa. Like I said, if we treat Edler right, there is no reason to believe that he won't resign with the Canucks. We don't have a Gaborik situation here :sarcasm:

pitseleh 10-10-2008 01:07 PM

I don't think it's a huge deal to sign a guy to a contract that takes him to UFA. Either you take him to the year before and if he wants out he goes to arbitration and gets out the next season or you just end up spreading out the additional cap hit of the UFA years you buy out now rather than absorbing them in the future and he ends up a UFA at the end of his contract anyway.

Kesler Kills Kommies 10-10-2008 01:08 PM

now we need to sign Ohlund and our defense will be set for years.

Not really. Our organization has no problem whatsoever keeping defensemen (especially Scandinavian defensemen). They absolutely love it here.

Ohlund will be re-upped this year as well. Bank on it.
