SKYO still trading our only 2 legitimate NHL Defenceman - Tanev and Edler?

Trust me, SKYO. Those two aren’t going anywhere
If Edler and Tanev are the teams only legitimate NHL d men, what does that make the other five d men on the roster? Is “fringe” a good description?

Agreed top 3 on the Canucks, on 25 other teams only Tanev, Edler would be #4 with all the mistakes he makes.

Next season we should have Quinn and Juolevi in the top 6. Pouliot, Del Zotto and Gillis’ only remaining draft pick in the NHL (beyond the acquired via Schneider sacrificed (Nonis draft pick) for Horvat, Connauton (traded with a 2nd for 30 days of Derek Roy) - Hutton will be gonzo

I asked what are the quality of the other defencemen on the roster. Are they “fringe” NHL guys?

Gudbranson and a Stecher are decent 5/6 d-men. The team is missing two quality top 4 D-men to go along with Tanev and a Edler. That’s the problem. Biega, Hutton, Pouliot and Del Zotto are whatever, not foundational. Spare parts. Our top 4 only has two. We need two more and Juolevi and Hughes might/should help alleviate the depth in the top 4

Doc won’t like this. He said Gudbranson is a legit top 4 guy on many occasions. Topper won’t like it because he tells us every day that Stecher sucks. I see you have softened your stance though from referring to Gudbranson and Stecher as decent 5/6 guys after first saying Tanev and Edler were the teams only legitimate NHL d men. Did your fear of Doc change your opinion?

Edler would be a #3 on almost teams. Even I can see that. Other dmen make plenty of mistakes. We just don’t see them because we don’t watch other teams the same way.

ONLY trade em if we are out of the playoffs in February and the offer is too good to turn down, otherwise keep em.

No player should be untouchable really
except your high end, recent drafted players on ELC's, as they are cost controlled and they haven't started their prime years yet.

I agree but here’s hoping if we’re out of it at the deadline edler does us a solid.

Irfaan Gaffar:

Scouts must have heard how nice the weather has been in Vancouver. There are 13 different teams represented here tonight for Canucks and Capitals.

Bhutt has been pumped to be dumped to make room for OJ?

Lawd knows scouts aren't here for MDZ.

OV on the block.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
