And he was a bit of a turtle to begin with.

While I think it’s a low risk move with decent upside, I’m not sad to see him go. He was a slow player before the injury and the Canucks as a group are too slow. Good for him for finding a gig but he wasn’t going to move the needle much here. There’s no room for him with all the overpaid clowns already cluttering up the forward group. At this point I’d prefer if they have a couple bucks to spend that they use it on a defender.
Exactly. Our used up scrubs slowing down the Shames is a win/win best case ontario scenario

The Flames seem to be all in on terrible skaters - Josh Leivo, Connor Zary. Who’s next? Gabe Vilardi?

@ Brown Lizzy Much like your buddy Stecher he’d still be good enough to crack this lineup but time to move on. Neither guy moves the needle much. There’s so much other useless crap on the roster making 4 or 5 times as much $$ as those guys and getting rid of those useless pieces of shit will be huge. Gotta wait out the five or six garbage deals that expire the next two years.

Over the next two seasons all these bad contracts will be gone. What’s the worry? After this up coming shoestring budget flat cap Covid season all of Sutter, Pearson, Baertschi, Edler, Spooner, Benn will go bye bye then just one more season of Eriksson, Roussel, Beagle, Luongo etc.

All replaced by ELC’s

That’s basically what I said. But thanks for your input. :lol: Don’t lump Edler in with all those useless tits. His contract is fine anyways. He’s still the teams 3rd best D man. I think he will re- up for a cheaper deal to stay here.

Yeah Edler may re-sign, he lives in Vancouver now with his Italian Vancouver raised wife. But that also depends on the development of lefties - Juolevi and Rathbone and the return of lefty - Tryamkin. As we’ve witnessed with Tanev, Stecher and Markstrom, Benning isn’t exactly a loyalist, he mean business

I agree about Eddy. He returns for a deal for sure.

Good point about the lefties in Ratbones and Olaf. Olaf has to earn a spot and show something soon. I’d still look for another vet to bring in. They are one injury from Jordie Benn playing in the top 4. I don’t count on Tryamkin returning. If he does, great but I’m not counting on it. But Edler is still effective so if you’re going to let him walk they better make damn sure at least of of those kids is ready to play hard minutes, because Edler eats a lot of tough minutes.

He signed a 1 year extension after the end of last season, so how that lines up with the next NHL season I don’t know but Podkolzin and him have one more season they are tied to over there so in that I assume they be arriving the same time, when that is I don’t know

Ok that excludes him from this season then. Too bad
