Like packaging him in a deal for Kris Letang? :mrgreen:


Good idea. Letang is a great puck moving, offensive dman. He lacks Edler's size and the physical component that Edler SOMETIMES brings. But he's decent positionally and Gillis would simply have to pair him with a physical, defensively responsible partner.

TSN'S is now reporting that Letang will probably be asking for $7M per year after his current deal expires......


That's overpayment. Edler at $5M is a better option than Letang at $7M. For what I've watched from Edler defensively over the last 2 years and coupled with his play on the point, I would take Letang at $6M over him. And to be honest I think it also depends on what the $2M you save on Edler at his current salary would end up being used for.....if it was just to stock up on a couple of Sestitos and a Dale Weise..... :look:

Don't think it's wise to add another smallish defenseman to the lineup at the expense of one of our only two big bodied defenseman.

I have absolutely no objection to MG using the two amnesty buy outs. Why should I, it isn't my money and it has no impact on the cap moving forward. It may however have an impact on ticket prices etc going forward because the water boy, along with wanting to win, wants to make money.


Water Boy, as I said, is making money hand over fist.

If he wants to keep the sellouts happening he should reinvest some of those profits via compliance buyouts.

And he WILL.

He's no fool.

We don't know how much he is profiting "on paper" and otherwise, but it could add up to as much as $70mil/per.

In other words.

A big fukin shitload


I read the other day Canucks have increased in value by an average of $20mil per season since Aquaman bought them.

So what's he making altogether per year off this franchise? $60-$70mil??

Hard to say but yeah its definately a big fukin shitload.


It is SO fucking obvious that Aqualini has already authorized Gillis to use both compliance buyouts it's ridiculous.

We don't need to go by the words of Gillis The Poker Player or close-to-the-vest Aqualini.

Nor should we.

And we certainly don't need to go by what the hockey pundits say.

All we need is not-so-common sense. :hmmm:

Only if we get to negotiate an extension with Letang first.

Garrison - Letang
Hamhuis - Bieksa
ASSHOLE - Tanev
Alberts - Corrado

Where do I sign? :drink:

Screw it. With all the big money contracts being given out (still), let's just keep Edler and wait for Bieksa's contract to go away. Worse case scenario the Canucks tread water.

Westcoast Napoleon on Edler:

I've never met him, but Alain and Mike told me about him and I've decided he needs to play better.

For what it's worth:

@Real_ESPNLeBrun: Another player generated a lot of phone calls towards Vancouver is d-man Alex Edler. His NTC kicks in July 1 but teams are calling...

LeBrun is usually on the level, and it's a not really a leap to think that teams would be calling about Edler. If Gillis is getting offers regarding him, and if the offers are good, he's a complete fool not to make some moves.

With Letang now re-signed Edler's contract is looking better and better. There are not a lot of D men available of his caliber for a 5 million hit. Two ways of looking at it I guess. His skill + cap should make for some interesting trade offers but the ability to replace what brings is severely limited.

Canes interested in moving their #1 pick for a top 4 on D but have apparently rejected any offer for Edler?!?!?!

Quite bad. Wonder if the suspension he got at the WHC will carry over into the Olympics.

Having said that, I don't see that as a compelling reason not to trade for the guy if Carolina needs a #1 Defenceman.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.

Caught the clip ( no pun intended). Pretty nasty and can see why they would be a little pissed at him.

"DarrenDreger reports there's still interest in Alex Edler (Detroit? Anaheim?). His new contract & NTC kicks in July 1."

His NTC will be starting a few hours, so if MG gets a good offer, Edler could be traded before the day is over.

With 4 top Left side Dmen making over $4M, it makes sense to try to re-tool the defense a bit, as we could get much needed help up front, and acquire a vet dman after.

Edler ($5m) - Bieksa ($4.6m)
Hamhuis ($4.5m) - Tanev (rfa)
Garrison ($4.6m) - Corrado ($600K)
Ballard ($4.2m)
