Clay’s Canucks Commentary:  Happy Hansen, Erratic Edler, and Ballard’s Return

Clay’s Canucks Commentary: Happy Hansen, Erratic Edler, and Ballard’s Return

I look at the good, the bad, and the interesting from the Canucks’ 3-2 shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks from Tuesday, March 5 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. The game between these two evenly-matched opponents started off a tad slowly but certainly picked up as the game entered the second-half of the second period and beyond. In the video, I touch on the Sedins, Jannik Hansen, the Canucks’ compete level, Alex Edler, our power-play, Keith Ballard’s return (and injury), and overtime shots on goal.

Edler’s Around For Six Years at a Bargain Price

The collective Canucks fan base can breathe a sigh of relief, Alex Edler doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere. Vancouver general manager Mike Gillis abruptly announced (over Twitter!) that the Canucks have locked up the defenseman to a six-year contract extension, worth $30-million. That means the silky blueliner will be making $5-million per season. It also means that he becomes Vancouver’s highest-paid defenceman, but perhaps that was to be expected.
