Keep in mind Edler was "injured" for most of the lockout, meaning he got paid for this year. Garrison was also "injured" and was paid as well. Both made amazing recoveries before the lockout ended.

Who's to say loyalty doesn't go two ways? Edler got a little loyalty thrown his way during the lockout, and he rewards the Canucks with a hometown discount.

Bieksa and Hamhuis also had signing bonuses that allowed salary to effectively be paid during the lockout. They signed somewhat below market value as well.

Gillis is a former agent and knows exactly how to manage the system.

I wouldn't DARE suggest that they've done anything untoward here. Just sayin' is all...
