Canucks still shopping Edler

Even though his no-trade clause kicked in July 1, the Vancouver Canucks are still dangling defenseman Alexander Edler as trade bait.

Edler, 27, will likely need to sign off on any trade the Canucks try to complete, but that hasn't stopped Canucks GM Mike Gillis from shopping him.

With roughly $8 million in available salary cap space, which includes the buyout of defenseman Keith Ballard, the Canucks are looking to create more room to re-sign some of their own players and lure free agents to town.

According to the Vancouver Province, the Canucks are looking for a young center to man the team's third-line and some top young talent in exchange for Edler.

The Detroit Red Wings, Carolina Hurricanes and Montreal Canadiens are among the teams interested in Edler.

A source close to the situation told TFP the Red Wings had offered a package that included young defenseman Brendan Smith in exchange for Edler, but that offer was rejected.
