Holy hyperbole batman. Edler is being extremely overrated here.
No Bieksa is not our best offensive d-man, Edler has outscored him for 3 straight years. When Edler was moved to the Sedin unit we got a no 1 PP. When Bieksa was on he top unit (08-09) Canucks were 17th overall.

Bieksa is not as good as Edler offensevly. They are equal defensevly but Bieksa has Hamhuis as a partner, Edler has Salo.
