bieksa took a bit of a discount, no doubt, but you can't expect edler to do the same just because KB did. and honestly i don't think KB is as good as edler, so no reason for edler to be getting the same deal as bieksa.
garrison had 1 good season and got $4.5M, edlers been good for a few years now, he is more proven, he will get more.
hamhuis also took a discount to play here, also he never put up the pts that edler had. like it or not, that will get him more money in the open market. also the cap was lower back then, $4.5M back when he signed is closer to $5M nowadays.

trading edler is likely not an option when the nucks are making a run for the cup. their window is closing and you can't subtract a key player from the line up now. unless you can do a edler ++ for weber (not going to happen), you just can't trade him.
