Awesome signing by Gillis. I was almost 100% sure Edler was gonna test the market.

I was expecting him to get 6, this is a great deal. There is no doubt he would have gotten more money in the open market with the demand for D right now.

our players are clearly not smart enough to see that Gillis is cheating them out of their market value

Kinda disappointed it wasn't a cap hit of $2.55 million.

Great signing by Gillis. $5M for this guy is a steal right now, in 3-4 years when he's in the thick of his prime and the cap has gone up it's going to be even better.

Awesome deal. MG might not walk on water, but aside from a deal for a certain goaltender, he crushes them out of the park for re-upping players.

If Edler's an "average dman" I'd love to know what the guys on the Leafs' blueline are.

The Canucks had 4 of the top 31 D for points last year, including Garrison, yet none of them are among the top paid...just crazy. Gillis is a great GM.

Can't believe they locked Edler up for 6-years at $5M (UFA years) while PK Subban wants $6M a season from us.

Rather than letting Ron Wilson derail the thread, let's all just kick back, appreciate our D-core and their contracts and let him make a fool of himself.


Great signing by Gillis.

If confirmed, that is an excellent deal. One that most VAN fans were hoping he would get, but were unsure if he would take.

The D and G are set on this team

Gillis is something else when it comes to signing contracts, just remarkable stuff.

I like the signing, but I think he really needs to step up in the playoffs. I honestly think he is good, but he was terrible IMO in 2011 playoffs. He was ok last year. He is pretty good in the regular season.

Good signing regardless. That will be about 23 million on 5 dmen. Gotta dump Ballard

He was not 100%, I remember the last series against the Kings and he was raved about for making Doughty and everyone look bad

Maybe he is looking at the Myers extension for leverage. Myers got 6m/year from us, though Myers did have 49 points in his rookie season and win the Calder. I don't think Subban is as valuable of a player though.
