Compliance buyout + the big ticket items are signed.

26 then. 6 years takes (if true) him to 32. I like that. It's a decently long contract and the player is still relatively young at the end of it.

We now have 5 defensemen making 4M+...Ballard, Bieksa, Edler, Garrison, Hamhuis. With Bieksa-Hamhuis and Edler-Garrison taking up 23-25 minutes per night, it seems illogical to pay Ballard 4.2M to play 10-15 minutes. I think he gets the boot soon...

Wow. $5 million a season? Amazing value for Vancouver. I love this deal for them.

Great deal for the Canucks. As already said, I think Ballard might be traded soon.

I'm willing to bet we trade one of our D now to a team looking for D.

Good cap hit, although question marks will remain around his back since he says it will never be 100% again. So much for Gillis' self imposed cap of 4.6m on D-men.

Probably more of a case of liking it here and having guys like Bieksa in the 4.6 range. Highest paid dman now

Edler clearly wanted to be a Canuck and IMO took a major discount, could've really cashed in on the market but like pretty much everyone else takes less to stay with a first class organization/city.
