Now, you need to think about what the Canucks need more. A better PMD or more Defensive Defensemen.

Hurricanes had E.Staal and Skinner, but they still went out and gave up a decent amount for Jordan Staal. What you think is right, isn't always what your GM feels is right. Gillis still hasn't put his "stamp" on the Canucks.
Edler is signed for 6 years at 5m. Letang has one year left before commanding a salary of 7m(more if he decides to test UFA)

I wouldn't trade Edler straight up for Letang. I'd be willing to offer a really solid package(Jensen + 1st ++), but not Edler.
