He's a borderline #1Dman, very hard to find on the trade market or free agency. He'll demand a top prospect/pick + an impact player at the very minimum. Much like Richards got Schenn and Simmonds, Carter got Voracek + 8th overall. Both of these packages are significantly better than Gagner and 7th overall.
Gagner has accomplished a hell of a lot more in his career than any of the players that were involved in those deals had managed at the time of their respective trades. Players like B. Schenn and Voracek were heralded as blue chips but had yet to accomplish much at the time of their deals. Gagner was drafted right ahead of Voracek and despite that player's very recent success on a stacked team, Gagner has had an illustrious career in comparison.

The 7th Overall is also higher than any pick that was included in any of the aforementioned deals, and it is certainly in a deeper/stronger draft than any of the aforementioned picks. If you're looking for a 3rd round pick or something to be added in then by all means discussions can continue, but if you're suggesting that the value offered in any of the packages discussed is well off you're out to lunch. Nucks also free up a lot of salary cap space in any of the proposed offers, not a negligible concept in this cap-tightened offseason.

See I don't have to bring up stuff like this. It doesn't change anything. Gillis is really fun to watch right now.

There is NO WAY any Duck does that, and this is coming from a Van Fan. Sbisa hasn't done as well this year as he did in the past, but he still has a good amount of value.

Sbisa had 24 points in 10-11, and is still only 23. They'd be moving an up and coming Top 4, possibly Top 2, defenseman and a 30 goal winger for a 40 point Top 2 Defenseman, not worth it.

Edler for Ryan is pretty fair, but I'd much rather have Edler than Ryan. We could buyout Booth and sign a cheaper 2nd line winger who puts up 10 less goals, but still have Edler around, who would more than make up for that.

Skinner for Edler? Both become UFA in the same year. Carolina wants help on D right? Only problem, Van adds salary/cap hit and as of right, they're close to the limit. Although, I'm sure Gillis will finds ways to lower his team salary.

Alex Edler to be moved?

Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger 20m https://twitter.com/DarrenDreger/sta...28864816988161
Edler's availability has a number of teams intrigued. Understandably, asking price is said to be high.

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun 10m https://twitter.com/Real_ESPNLeBrun/...31507782164481
Not sure if he moves or not, but Canucks getting lots of calls on Edler

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie 4m https://twitter.com/TSNBobMcKenzie/s...33299102285824
Will VAN's Alex Edler get "Jeff Carter-ed"? (Traded right before his NTC kicks in). I'd say there's a decent chance Edler gets "Carter-ed."

Being a fan of a poor team doesn't preclude someone from having an opinion on other teams.

However, you may notice a pattern in the posts. I've always been under the impression that Leafs fans were unaware Vancouver had a team. Even if the did know, they certainly wouldn't care.

I still see a deal to be made between Pittsburgh (Letang) and Vancouver (Edler). Plus/minus parts.

Letang gives the Canucks the offensive defenseman that they haven't had since Ehrhoff left. Arguably, their offense have never been the same since.

Edler gives the Penguins a top-pairing defenseman signed to a very affordable contract for another five seasons. He would seamlessly fit into Pittsburgh's line-up and their salary cap structure.

Edler is going to get a massive return, He is a big #1 d-man on a amazing contract, who hits, and his physical.

he has a few brain cramps here and der, but that's about it.

If schneider is worth 7th + top prospect, wtf can edler be worth

Edler and Vanek deal I think would benefit both teams.

Why would Vancouver move Edler for a more expensive player with only 1 year left on his contract?

Edler AND Schneider to Edmonton for ________

You would have to imagine Edmonton would pay hansomely for that package. As a Canucks fan I'd want one of "The big 4" and Klefbom at least. Maybe swap firsts as well.

Eberle/Yak, Klefbom and 7th overall for Edler, Schneider and 24th overall.

I was thinking about this scenario as well. It would be beyond nuts.
