Then you're probably going to complain at the end of the season when the Canucks get knocked out of the 1st round again. That's nowhere near a cup-worthy d-core

All I asked was to provide a suitable plan B that improves the team if you're fine letting Edler walk for what is essentially market value. You don't have to get all defensive over it.

Right, it doesn't always work and also, we're at the stage where the team needs to target elite players, and those players in general rarely ever become available. How long are we going to wait before we find a suitable replacement for Edler? Are we going to waste a season like we did this past one when we didn't find a replacement for Ehrhoff?
