However, Vancouver does not exactly have a ton of cap. I could see them not re-signing Edler.
If that's the case and he does go to FA, then Detroit, with a huge need for him, and quite a bit of cap, as well as him being a Swede, you'd have to think would be a front runner for his services. From a Detroit perspective, I would rather have Helm+Filppula+chance at Edler over possibly Edler. Even if he is traded to Detroit, there is no guarantee he would sign there.
Edler is the type of player you make room for to re-sign. I have no concerns that Canucks management will let him walk.
