- 2nd pairing LD on the canucks
- perceived to have enormous value
- has been very suspect defensively the last couple years
- Canucks can conceivably run Hamhius-Bieksa|Garrison-Tanev/#3/4 RD and not be much worse if at all, as a lot of what Edler and Garrison do overlap and Garrison is better defensively.
- Basically they think they can move a piece that is pretty redundant (ie roster won't suffer much for losing it) and get enormous value. Same deal with Schneider but seems they'd rather lose Luongo for nothing/negative value.

Vancouver - Schneider - Edler (- Ballard bought out) + 1 solid #3/#4 RD + return from those two up front would be a much better team, possibly enough to challenge for the cup again before Sedins are up.
