Seems like a fair deal for Alex Edler

Edit: maybe a little to much actually, idk not a big fan of the guy.

No way, that's a really good contract.

He's an upcoming UFA who had lots of leverage (would've been the best UFA dman hands down) and he signed a 6 year deal for only 5m a season.

That is a great deal for Gillis and the Canucks.

Suddenly Smid is the best UFA defenseman coming up next season.

That's probably a discount of $1 million a year from what Edler could have got hitting UFA this summer.
Agreed, he would've got PAID this offseason if he went to UFA.
