Enstrom is probably better offensively but I think it's pretty close, Edler can be a beast in his own zone but Enstrom is probably more consistent and finally Edler is more physical.

I would say that Enstrom has been the more consistently valuable player but that Edler comes in a shinier package which includes potential for a higher ceiling (I have my doubts he will hit it).

So, in terms of contracts, does Edler get more or less?
In real terms, Edler should earn less than Enstrom because Enstrom is the better player in spite of his size and physical play. However, this is a very nice deal for the Jets and it is likely that Edler gets around the same money, if not more.
