$6M/yr for edler is not an overpayment (this is based on the old cap, who knows what the new CBA will bring), just look at the contracts handed out to UFA Dman this summer, wideman at $5.5M!? how is edler not worth $.5M more?
Our best offensive defenseman is Kevin Bieksa. Edler gets most of his points on the PP where he's featured on the top unit. Give Bieksa those minutes and he would have a lot more points than he does now.
Holy hyperbole batman. Edler is being extremely overrated here.
I told ya so. I was right all along!
