And even if you consider Edler to be a high end #2, he's still much more valuable than a 30 year old 2nd liner.
If Philly wants Kesler + Edler, it would cost Couturier + Hartnell + Schenn + Meszaros. (and maybe even more)
Kesler = Schenn + Hartnell
Edler = Couturier + Meszaros
(and I know it means nothing since a few picks were shockingly bad, but HF recently voted Edler as the 12th best d-man, 11th if you ignore Lidstrom due to retirement)
LOL, hilarious. Nothing more to say about that.
Couturier, schenn, hartnell and Meszaros >>> Edler and Kesler.
Schenn + Hartnell >> Kesler ( serious injury questions with shoulder)
Edler >= Couturier value wise IMO, when adding Meszaros it's <
Again, hartnell was 6th in the league in goals, he's a 1st liner, you're over valuing Edler and severely under valuing Hartnell. I believe Edler has slightly more value but it's close.
