The Canucks cap situation in over a year can go a lot of different ways, you have no idea what it will look like.
This statement right here...
Check around the league and see how many 30ish point and 60ish point centres there are, then go look at how many defensemen are putting up 50 points. Edler is also big, physical and just starting to really round out his game.
Unless you were talking about someone else, then you referred to Edler as a 50 point defensman. 49 points, yes, I know its a technicality. It may as well be 50. However, if you're refusing to call Filppula a 66 point center because he has only hit that total once, then you can't call Edler a 50 point defenseman either, since he basically only hit that once.

Yeah, sorry no, but if you want to believe the Canucks could actually afford both Edler then Filppula next year, then go ahead. You can dream all you want.
