I was 100% sure he'd try out FA. Great surprise.

Wow, superb job Gillis.

I love Gillis, he keeps us in the fight every year for the cup.

Yup, the dollar amount is excellent, locked up 6 years of unrestricted free agency and the deal ends before Edler should noticeably decline. A perfect storm.

With the top 4 on defense and Schneider locked up longterm Gillis can focus solely on the forward corps. Which is oustanding when you have the Sedins, Kesler and Burrows in the mix. Bring in 1 more impact forward, re-sign the Sedins and this team should be a cup contender for at least the next 4-5 years.

I can't imagine there's another team out there with a top 4 locked up for as long, or with as much quality.

I dunno guys. Is Mike Gillis listed as a credible source on HFBoards?

Outside of Ehrhoff, Gillis has done a great job of keeping our core players here at great prices.

This is the low end of what I was hoping for, in terms of cap hit for Edler. To be honest I expected about 5.75M per, so this is a good signing.

On an aside, I think this is the Year of the Ballard - and that we will all be pushing for Bieksa to be dealt by year end (I have a feeling he is going to revert to the bad Bieksa this year).

Perfect deal IMO. Thought Edler would be commanding closer to $6M/per.

Great deal. Don't know why I expected any worse with Gillis as the GM. I was afraid we'd lose Edler.

That defence. Edler, Hamhuis, Bieksa, and Garrison all signed long-term now. Love it!

Another good signing in Gillis' time here.

Very happy Edler is my favorite D man.

Top 4 for the future is set!

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Garrison

Schneider

Time to build up on some talented forwards to make this top four defense and top goalie worth having.

I agree. trade the Sedins! Schroeder and Raymond need some help.

With Tanev & Corrado coming in the pipe line we'll have those 3 RH Dmen we all talk about.

Not only that, but Tanev gives the team excellent security when injury strikes the top 4...

Hamhuis injured-

Garrison Bieksa
Edler tanev
Ballard

Bieksa injured-

Hamhuis Tanev
Garrison Edler
Ballard

Edler injured-

Hamhuis Bieksa
Garrison Tanev
Ballard

Garrison injured-

Hamhuis Bieksa
Edler Tanev
Ballard

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.

Well done! I was sure he'd follow Ohlund, Mitchell and Salo into FA!
