Edler is being terribly overated here. If he wants more than 4.5 trade him. He hasn't earned it or let him play out his contract and show the team that he's worth more than that. If some team wants to offer sheet him and overpay let them. Just because some teams might overpay him doesn't mean that the Canucks should.
Edler has a tantalizing mix of being a large body, who can skate well for his size. Good passing skills, and a hard but innacurate shot and some offensive zone hockey sense. He's the closest thing to a PP QB we have. He has a lot of tools for a defenseman yet so young.
My problem (and I believe it's a huge problem) is that he doesn't seem to have any sort of competitive edge to him. He's sleepy and unfocused 90 percent of the time. scared of getting hit, scared of getting in a scrum, scared of protecting his goaltender or teamates, scared of standing up for himself. Not the type of player you want on your side when your down in the trenches going through the playoff grind.
