I'm dumbfounded by many Canucks fans opinions of this guy. He's been solid in every facet of the game when healthy for this team and was our #1 defenseman in '09-10.

Do people just start disparaging his play so they're not disappointed if he inevitably leaves? Because this guy has been a stud for us.
I think part of the problem is that people tend to focus on his weaknesses and remember his play in the SCF when he was clearly hurt. I don't think it's any accident that he was the main point man on the number one power play. Clearly he's not a Norris defenceman but he's at the next level below that and an elite offensive defenceman. We won't be able to replace that unless Edler takes another step forward.
