    I don’t know what games you’ve been watching, but Edler’s probably been the Canucks’ best defenseman (or at least, second-best next to Jason Garrison). Yes, he’s had the odd brain cramp, but which Canucks defenseman hasn’t? In fact, you can argue Edler’s been the steadiest of the bunch. If you think Tortorella should bench him, then I’d like to know who you would play in his place. Andrew Alberts?

    Edler has been Canucks’ best D and the steadiest of the bunch? While he has been scoring a lot his defensive play was often awful. Garrison and Hamhuis are definitely way better than him. Don’t get me wrong, I have an Edler jersey and was a big fan of his, but he simply didn’t deserve that contract.

    Hey jandt, I’ve seen nothing but terrible from Edler in the last 2 years of playoffs – causing turnovers and goals for the other team. And his suspensions have been because of careless hits, like the one on Staal in the Worlds and the one the other night. He doesn’t go after people but he doesn’t avoid bad hits and he should. Also, no I don’t think Alberts should take his place. I think we should have traded Edler and now that we haven’t dig deep into our supposed depth and find someone who isn’t screwing up. But again, it’s just my opinion. Clearly different from yours but hey, that’s what makes the world go-round.

    You do realize that the acronym for the Department of Player Safety is DoPS? Pronounced “dopes”. Enough said…

    I agree Trevor!

    Ha! I didn’t realize that but boy does that make sense! Thanks for the laugh Brent!
