That's his point.

It would take an amazing package to get Edler

Edler isn't going to be traded anytime soon.

We'll take that package for Bieksa on the other hand.

Exactly, if you put more thought into this proposal you would know that it doesn't make the slightest sense

So we give up one of our best defenseman to obtain Couture (we already have an excellent top 6, Hodgson and Schroeder).

Now let's look at the sharks D... Okay.

No, I don't think San Jose has anything they would be willing to give up that Gillis would trade for Edler. Nothing at all.

Thornton+1st+2nd+Couture+Setoguchi+Vlasic+Pavelski +Boyle wouldn't do the trick?

Would you Vancouver fans do this

Vancouver
Clowe
1st round pick
Joslin
Petrecki
Mitchell


San Jose
Edler
Raymond
Bieksa/O'Brien

You owe us future considerations from the Ehrhoff trade so O'Brien or Bieksa could be those future considerations

Nothing that would make sense. We can't afford to trade potentially our best Defenseman to another contender with a very weak blue line.

You used Boyle as an example but there's not a chance you could afford to trade him or DW will get fired on the spot

Couture serves absolutely no purpose for Vancouver, they have enough centers. Not to mention that they try to win now, which should make it pretty obvious that trading an established but still improving defenseman for a prospect makes no sense.

The Sharks, on the other hand, have absolutely no reason to go after someone like Edler. He'd cost way too many assets. San Jose doesn't gain anything if they improve their defense by trade while weakening the offense even further. Trying to sign someone like Mitchell makes far more sense.

@Thorntonfan97

That makes even less sense. Clowe has less value to Vancouver than Raymond, as Raymond is far cheaper. That makes it Edler plus Bieksa/O'Brien for almost nothing of value. Mitchell hasn't done much lately, the 1st is likely a low pick, Joslin isn't setting the world on fire and Petrecki is far away from the NHL, if he gets back on track at all.

LOL, TF97, try to keep the stuff realistic.

As for the OP, I thought it would be a good proposal considering that the Sharks definitely need a two-way defenseman, and the Nucks could use a little cap space, and Couture would help out their bottom 6.

no, Edler is untouchable, unless its for a substantial upgrade on him, which wont happen. If he gets some consistency he could very well contend for the norris one day, not someone we want to trade.

I didn't think the value was too off but whatever if y'all don't like it, that's cool.

Did you even consider Vancouver's needs/goals in this proposal?

I don't think the value is terrible (though I really like Couture as a prospect) but the Canucks need Edler a lot more than they need another scoring line prospect.

Saw the proposal and knew it was a Sharks fan proposing it. That tells me the value isn't fair.

Just can't see Vancouver having any interest in moving Edler.

+1, however we would definitely be interested in Edler though. If Vlasic regresses again next year, I'd entice Vancouver with Vlasic++.

If Vlasic regresses why would Vancouver want to move Edler for a package centered around a lesser player?

You don't try to get yourself a little cap space by trading a young core-player. Do you think the Sharks would try and gain a little bit of capspace by trading Vlasic?

Such a deal doesn't help a contender. You don't trade away a player who is supposed to play an important role to help out with your bottom 6 either.

Is the value off on Hodgson+Ballard+1st for Thornton? No, but that doesn't mean we would do it (Nor would Vancouver). You need to take team needs into consideration. Vancouver has Sedin-Kesler-Malhotra-Hodgson down the middle, they don't need Couture. They just moved their 1st+Grabner for a d-man who is about as good as, and older than Edler, in Ballard. this puts them in pretty much the same spot as they were before that trade. Why do it? As a side note, everyone here can look at Boyle-Vlasic-Murray-Huskins-Wallin-Demers and see a gaping hole, why would the Nucks- who have an elite d-squad, equivalent forward core, and excellent goalie- trade the key missing piece to their #1 or #2 contender for the western conference title, and trip to stanley cup? They wouldn't. If I were them, I wouldn't trade Bieksa to us either, just because while inconsistent, and not at the level of Ehrhoff, Ballard, Edler or Hambius, they know he has the potential to outplay them in a playoff series.

Stop daydreaming about players like Enstrom, Edler, and Suter, and try to think of realistic options like Oduya, Beauchmein, or Bieska. It is fun to dream, but keep em in your head not on the trade board where you will be subjected to humiliation.

Nope because of the salary cap. To take that deal, it means we will need to move Luongo + Kesler or the Twins. No way we do it... even if its We would need to find a rebuilding team like the NYI to make it a 3 way trade and grab their 1st for the next 10 years.

The trade itself, no way the 'nucks will move Edler as he has the most upside out of all our dmans and could very well end up being a #1 dman for us. As much upside as Couture has, he doesn't really fit our need since our forwards are pretty much set for now (all signed to 2+ year deals in the top 6) and the future (with all our top prospect being forwards too). The value isn't even close either since Elder already has 42 pt season and 79 pt in the last 2 years while playing very solid defense and is only 24. Not to mention 3 more years @ 3.25mil? That's a bargain for a 24 year old 40+ pt dman with a lot of upside vs. a top prospect for the Sharks but really not proven and a 1st (which is likely in the late 20s).
