Bieksa is the better defenseman. People can plug their ears and close their eyes all the want, but the stats don't lie. That being said, I've maintained that there is value in Edler's potential. Paying Edler $1M more than Bieksa is ridiculous though and could very well turn into a bad contract, but paying Edler a little bit more than Bieksa (5M or 5.5M with no NTC) is more than reasonable. I don't see why people would disagree with this.
Unfortunately, you are the only one that thinks that.
