Vancouver Canucks

In today's rumor rundown, there is speculation the Canucks may elect to trade their star defenseman, the Blue Jackets have a difficult decision to make when it comes to Sergei Bobrovsky and the Maple Leafs and Mitch Marner will be waiting to get a deal done until after the season. Canucks To Trade and Re-sign Alex Edler? With rumors running rampant as to what the plan is for Alex Edler in Vancouver, Luke Fox of Sportsnet reports in an ideal world, the Vancouver Canucks defenseman would waive his no-trade clause, allow the Canucks to deal him for some assets before the trade deadline, and then re-sign with the franchise on July 1st.

We take a look at which teams are interested in defenseman Dougie Hamilton and finally, is Jimmy Howard staying in Detroit? Vancouver Weighing Edler Options Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province says the Canucks are trying to re-sign defenseman Alex Edler versus asking him to waive his no-trade clause and trying to get a draft pick or prospect for him at the deadline (which they could certainly do based on his play this season). That said, one option Kuzma believes the Canucks have toyed with is trading Edler then trying to re-sign at the start of free agency. Kuzma quotes Jim Benning as saying, “We’re going to look at all of our options. He (Edler) has been a part of the organization for a long time and I know he wants to continue on.”...
