Steady Eddy has earned the right to be in control of his own destiny. Too bad for him he wont be looking at an optimum situation for himself.

Timing sucks. Same for everyone but you admire a player that totally dedicated himself to one team and has always been absolutely professional

about it. Over the years, has had the good fortune to be paired up with some good partners but never bitched about being saddled with crappy ones.

Even at his age, worth a good 2.5 to 2.8 per, for two years, minimum.

He got one, $6M per for a couple years, a nice tidy sum, he's been a steady #2 (a assistant to the regional manager type), an awesome Canuck soldier and will be rewarded as such.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Guys, Edler's next contract is a 35+ one.

Meaning he can have a lower base salary plus bonuses.

If his play is good enough he'll trigger bonuses.

No doubt something fair for both sides can be worked out...

And this is where fans emotions get in the way of hockey being a business.

The only thing a player earns is the right for teams to bid on their skill sets, and that price is determined by market value based off results and intangibles. As a fan, we hope he stays for the right salary, but if the player wants more money (or term) than his play/skill set/intangibles deserves, the team must move on from the player (See Tanev and Markstrom). If the team decides it will be better without the player, perhaps needs culture change or roster space, the team must move on from the player (see Chara).

Only in the case of an exceptional player should the player ever be in charge of their destiny (see Sedins/Yzerman), and even then, it should only happen once in a generation as it’s usually better for the team to recoup assets if possible (Gretzky).

You can’t build a successful franchise if every player is considered an exception. Winning the cup is war. Players are all soldiers with a role, and by definition, soldiers are expendable.

All true but he ain’t signing for 1.5 million or 2.8 or whatever other asinine number I saw . He’s still a quality hockey player.

Elder is on the downward spiral. Chara his ass.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

I’m all for gonging him once there is an internal replacement. To get a younger version of Edler on the trade market would be a fortune. These guys never get to UFA and if they do they are looking for a massive payday. The man still chews up the toughest ice time on the team and does it well. One year deals at a time until then.

Schmidt will be a godsend as far as Edler's durability goes. He will be doing the heavy lifting now so Eddy can settle into a reduced roll. Watch him have a great year with the reduced work load

I could see doing a 1 year deal at 3 mil after this one but wouldn’t be too keen on it. At his age I think 2 mil is more fair value. also why I would like to bring in a Vatanen or Harmonic on a 1.5 this year, see how they go and choose the cheaper option for next year. This is assuming of young guys do step up and can fill any potential void.

Lol why have two well rounded guys when you can have one? Schmidt has not been a staple on the PK like Edler has for a decade +. This team needs more good players, not less.

And if I was Edler I’d say suck a bag of dicks and go somewhere else for a couple years at 4.5 million a year. Lotsa teams would pony up for Alex Edler at the end of the season. The guy is still a very effective player and people want to pay him less than Jay Beagle or Brandon Sutter.

Schmidt is a much better player than Eddy is now and will absolutely be logging big minutes including on the PK. Hes not a one dimension player whatsoever.

BTW I'm not advocating losing Edler at all...quite the opposite

I get what you are saying but those contracts were also before a flat cap which is probably not going to go up much if at all after this season. It is Edler’s choice if he wants to sign on the dotted line at that price to stay in Vancouver. Also Sutter and Beagle’s contracts will be gone sooner than later.
