He may never play another game with his current contract... and what makes you think he'll sign an extension with NYI?

What makes you think he'll sign an extension in Vancouver without a NTC? What makes you think Gillis will blindside him and trade him away immediately after?


Edler is worth a 3rd or 4th round pick.
GMs can allow other teams to negotiate an extension with their players prior to being traded. We're assuming Edler would be willing to. Otherwise it's just as big a problem with Spezza, as why would he waive his NTC for the Islanders. Heck, why would the Islanders trade Tavares?

This is all simply to gague the value Tavares would have to other team. For the Canucks, we'd lose Edler, Kesler, and Schneider for him(at least in my opinion). Saying it's unrealistic Edler would want to re-sign with the Islanders defeats the entire purpose of the thread.
