So, never quite understood why Gillis was asking for Gardiner. As of now, Canucks have an abundance of lefty d-men. But Gallagher and Botch have suggested/implied that this might be Edlers last season in Van:

Botch
Q: more i look at it, more it seems like real possiblityole Edler may not be around for a while. you believe it?
A: I have it as 75% gone after this year

Gallaghers article: Link

Yes, some complainants don't like Botch or Gallagher, but Edler didn't resign before the expiring CBA - so it def poses a ?? If Edler wants to much, might they package him in a goalie trade? Or, will Gillis be looking for another top 4 d-man in a goalie trade instead of centre/winger for Kes? If you look at the 2013 UFA d-men, it's a bust. So Gillis might need to get his replacement back in a goalie trade.
