The Daily Hive is reporting that Edler looks done in Vancouver. Mgmt has their targets on Jake Gardiner and maybe Myers.

Age, durability and Seattle Expansion playing into Bennings decision. To let Edler walk, better options out there, Myers is 4 years younger and more durable, same with Gardiner who turns 29 in July

And they are worse players too. But hey let’s give them more annual salary and seven years to take them to 36. Makes tons of sense. Hopefully Frank takes the cheque book away If this is how Elmer plans to spend his cap space.

We’d have Kylington and Calgary’s 3rd if it were not for Edlers full term NTC thanks to Gillis

Garrison 5 years $27.5 Million full NTC, thank gawd he waived!

That’s what happens when you only draft Sauve and Connauton in the first 3 rounds of 6 drafts.

Blame Benning

Let’s revisit this in a few years after Benning has had 6 drafts like Gillis.

Not to mention there's no guarantee the Canucks can land either of these guys. Sure, we can swap out Edler for Gardiner/Myers, but it may not happen. Then what? There may be a boost from Hughes if he sticks, but it may not be a defensive improvement. Sign Edler for the minimum term you can get away with - maybe it's crazy long, we don't know - AND try to sign one of these FA D-men.

He’s coming up on six drafts , six years of trading and six UFA seasons as we speak.
