One thing that kind of puzzles me is why other Vancouver fans feel as if they'd trade Edler for an impact forward. Personally, there's no way in hell I'd do that. We have multiple prospects in our organisation who are on the cusp of being NHL regulars, and have the potential to be impact forwards. In example, Kassian and Jensen are the most prominant with Schroeder having an outside chance. But on defense, we don't have a single player that projects to be anything close to what Edler is, and I don't foresee us being and to acquire a guy like him through free agency. Our closest bets are Corrado and possibly Connauton if he makes a huge developmental leap. But still, this will happen 5 years down the road when our window with the Sedins is virtually closed.
