  • Canucks' Alexander Edler: GM wants blueliner to stay put

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/27/17) Edler will not be actively shopped by the Cancuks as the team looks to rebuild, theScore reports.

    GM Jim Benning reportedly wants to retain the likes of Edler and Chris Tanev to avoid putting too much pressure on younger players that should emerge in the coming years. Edler has been in the league for a decade, with the Swede tacking on at least 20 points in each season -- save for his abbreviated rookie campaign. However, the Canucks have been rather suspect defensively, and it's culminated in a minus-28 rating for Edler over the past two years. The Red Wings -- for one -- could really use the ice hog as a top-pairing power-play defenseman, but Benning apparently has other ideas. Expect a relatively low fantasy ceiling so long as Edler remains in Vancouver.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Tallies late score in defeat to Oilers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/17) Edler scored a goal on four shots in 23:19 of ice time during a 3-2 loss to the Oilers on Saturday.

    His score brought the Canucks within a goal with 40 seconds remaining, but Vancouver couldn't find the equalizer in the final moments. Edler is killing owners with a minus-19 rating this season, but he has recorded more shots and points than last season. He owns six goals, 21 points, and 138 shots in 67 games.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Collects helper in loss to Blues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/24/17) Edler recorded an assist and registered five shots on net during Thursday's loss to St. Louis.

    While Edler is clearly the No. 1 defenseman for the Canucks, it hasn't translated to consistent fantasy production. The 31-year-old has just 19 points through 59 games and sports a minus-15 rating. He's helped in the shots (113) and blocked shots (123) columns, but without stronger offensive production, the peripheral numbers aren't enough to move the needle in most settings.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Strikes from center ice Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/17) Edler scored from center ice in Saturday's win over Calgary.

    It was a long blast that dipped and fooled Brian Elliott, but it all counts the same. Edler had a productive fantasy night, also dishing out five hits and picking up two PIM. He only has three goals on the season, but Edler has been productive of late, racking up two goals and six points in his last seven games. He's not a great fantasy fantasy option in most leagues, but Edler is hot and plays on the power play, so he could be worth looking at in deeper formats while the Canucks remain in the playoff picture.

    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Struggling to produce offense of late

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/7/17) Edler has managed just one assist in his last nine games.

    It's been a rough year offensively for Edler, who has just one goal and nine points in 38 games on the season. He continues to be relied on heavily by Vancouver, as exemplified by the 27:20 of ice time he logged in Saturday's loss to the Wild. He no longer quaterbacks the top power-play unit and is no longer the 40-point-getter he once was. The 30-year-old remains a decent blueliner, but his minus-10 rating and lack of offense makes him avoidable in fantasy. Edler could catch fire at some point, but the Canucks appear to be trending downwards and Edler's best years are behind him, so it's probably smart to look elsewhere.
