Comparing Enstrom/Wideman/Carle to Edler is for the purpose of showing comparable defenseman and what they have recently signed for.

EVERY contract is a risk. To bring up Redden's contract just because it is an example one that backfired has no more significance to Edler's situation than it does to any other big-money UFA signing.

Enstrom/Wideman/Carle are all examples of defenders similar in stats/age/skill to Edler--hell, Edler is actually younger and better than all three--and they all signed contracts within the last year. Those players/contracts are far more comparable to Edler's than Redden's.
