Edler has a much better shot than Bieksa, which makes him better suited for the role he's used in on the top PP unit.
like i listed before, vision, anticipation, the ability to run the PP, these are things that don't show up on the score sheet. things like better passing and shot don't always show up in stats either, if it doesn't lead to a goal. but these are things that i can see where edler is superior to bieksa in.

the reality is edler is a pending UFA, all these talk of edler vs bieksa is really unnecessary because KB is just ONE of the MANY comparable that edler and his agent is going to use. for every bieksa you list, his agent will counter with a wideman. at the end of the day if you play hardball with edler he'll leave as a FA, and you get nothing in return. edler's market value is around $6M IMO, if gillis don't give it to him somebody else will (in the open market with edler being the top Dman available, i wouldn't be surprise if he signs for $7M).
