Canucks President of hockey operations Trevor Linden, says that Alexander Edler is a vital part of the Canucks franchise.
Edler's name has been mentioned in a possible trade for Ryan O'Reilly but Linden stopped those rumors. "Alex is a foundational player for us," Linden said. "He’s a 25-minute, all-situation defenseman that every team is looking for. We haven’t had any trade discussion involving Alex. He’s going to be a cornerstone for our organization moving forward. Alex is having a real good season. He’s a big, strong, physical guy who can match up against anybody’s top line. He’s good in his own end, he’s a good puck-mover, has a big shot. That’s the type of guy you look for. Having him bounce back has been critical to our success this year." Edler has five goals and 15 points this season but has made a huge improvement in plus/minus as he is plus-seven thus far after a minus-39 rating last season, the worst in the NHL. Jan 24 - 9:03 AM
