5 million a season eh? They called us mad when we claimed he would sign at such a bargain! Muahahahaha...


Seriously, thanks for the support though, it's a heck of a deal, and I hope this is precedent for other defensemen signing in the near future (Subban, I'm looking your way....).

Hopefully this prevents our fans from including him a bunch of trade proposals now.

I don't really buy into it being that black and white. Luongo has a lot of buyout-friendly years at the end of the deal and has shown no signs of slowing down.

Such a good signing. Love everything about it. So happy Edler is staying a Canuck for another six seasons.

Anyway you slice it, that is a nice deal for the Canucks and one wonders how this is now going to influence the Habs and Subs....I think it is fair to say Elder is equal to Subs if not better.....

Stunned.

Fantastic deal. Was not expecting this. I thought it was either 6.5mil/yr or letting him walk in a few months.

I hope not, which is why this deal is so great

All 6 years are UFA years. That's outstanding at $5mil per. Especially when the deal ends when Edler is 33.

Hamhuis Bieksa
Garrison Edler

Schneider

All locked up for at least the next 4 years. Good foundation to build on.

Plus Kesler and Burrows up front.

Nice deal for the Canucks. Can't believe it's only 5 million. This deal is why some people were stunned with Zajac's.

Tanev isn't too shabby either. I think he only gets better and better as he gets more experience. Corrado up and coming too. Can definitely handle our defense and goalie situations for the next 4-5 years, just need to really focus on getting some higher end players on forward.

He is coming off a back injury. And claimed he would never be the same player. Good for him to get security. A bad back can be brutal, nagging.

Better than what I had him penciled in at... $5.5 mil.

I like to imagine that this Ron Wilson poster is actually a bitter, unemployed Ron Wilson getting drunk and throwing out vitriol. Although he'd probably be a bit more critical of the Leafs if that were true...

Which is promising with 2 of the league's top 10 forwards already in the mix and Kesler/Burrows locked up longterm.

Just get 1 more impact forward like Bobby Ryan somehow.
