Canucks Solidify Blueline for the Future
Last night the Canucks decided to spend some money and resigned defenseman Alex Edler for another 6 years at $5million/yr.
As a Canucks fan, I'm pretty happy about this. Edler is going to be a premier Dman before he retires.

Very nice signing for them. I'm looking forward to seeing the Canucks tonight.

Edler is a lot like Mattias Ohlund, just with more offensive upside. We know how good Ohlund was.
I was ecstatic to hear about this signing.

Look at the cap hits on their defense next season:
That's $22.9million on 5 defensemen. One has to think Ballard will be bought out at the end of this season when Malholtra, Raymond, Higgins, Lapierre, Ebbett, Vandermeet, Volpatti, Alberts and Barker become UFAs and Tanev and Weise become RFAs
