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).
Edler had never run a PP in his life.
He plays a part, but he most certainly isnt 'pulling the strings'.
