That's not very hard to do

They just like to stir crap up. And they know absolutely nothing about Edler's character, whereas we know exactly the kind of guy he is.

HNIC Hot Stove were discussing PK Subban's contract, what he's been offered, and a bunch of comparables. Edler's contract is unreal favourable for the team.

Probably been mentioned already but Im too lazy to go back pages but Edlers a quiet guy who likes to keep out of the spotlight etc. Seems like he likes his stability and he likes it in Vancouver. I can see him heading back to sweden after hes done with hockey over here.

Good deal for him and the nucks.

Skates pretty well for a guy with a broken back no?


I'm pretty sure they did their due diligence before signing him to that contract, considering the 6 year term.

Hmm 10 million a year i thought it was 40m over ten years cannot remember. Was amistake keeping Ballard letting Ehrhoff go period.
Edler signing great.

Erhoff salary cap is 4m right? So i do not care if he gets 10m in year one. Erhoff was not perfect however no one can doubt he improved the team. Can the same be said for Ballard. If we are getting rid of all our flawed players we would have no one left. It all worked out as we got Garrison and resigned Edler. However Erhoff with flaws and all is an above average d man who got a contract that was not ridiculous.

He is now 30m over 9 years seems like a great deal now. I think in the end i like him as a player and you do not. It is not about the money. Gillis and AV agreed with you. I think it hurt the pp and the Sedins a lot last year. Garrison hopefully fills that void. Back on point Edler signing is great if we keep on signing core players below market value develop a couple younger players we can stop trading for second tier players like Booth and Ballard and get one more top line scorer that we need IMO to win it all.

He was disappointing in the playoffs. No business asking for that type of money.

The scenario wasn't that simple.

Yeah, that'd be awesome to have another contract where the Canucks could potentially have their cap space eaten up by a retired player.

I love that we have two top notch pairings in

Garrison - Edler
Hamhuis - Bieksa

that can shutdown, move the puck, and provide offense.

Being a Canuck is more a lifestyle than it is a job. Full credit goes to Gillis for creating this little ecosystem.
This. But watch the MG haters say we got Edler at 5 per only because he wanted to stay here and nothing else. The quality of life and the benefits provided to the players here are so understated and often overlooked at times when considering signings.

IMO the top 4 looks good, regardless of who is injured. Garrison should be able to pair up well with Bieksa and Tanev seems like he could play with anyone. Love the mix in the top 5 - still see Ballard as the #6, though maybe he turns things around.
Exactly. Now we just have to avoid multiple injuries to the D and we (hopefully) should be ok. Love the depth on defence.

I keep seeing people saying that Garrison is going to fill the void that was left by Ehrhoff leaving but, I honestly don't see it. Our defense is pretty much the same as last year except Garrison is in and Salo is out. And tbh Garrison and Salo are a lot more similar than Garrison and Ehrhoff. The only difference being that Garrison will probably *knock on wood* play more games but Salo is more proven.

I dont post much in these forums but I do read through them..I gotta admit I was for trading Edler but at you can not sign a defenseman of Edlers caliber for that money..By far one of Gillis's best signings since he's been GM..
