Regarding this Edler/Bieksa discussion I must first say that I've always been a big fan of Bieksa, even when I was face palming over his defensive struggles I always knew he would come around.

I like Edler too, and if someone told me I could have only one of them I would be hard-pressed to make a decision. They both bring different things to the table that the other doesn't necessarily possess. Also, Bieksa is almost always a playoffs beast whereas Edler has struggled at times. Other times he's been great but when he is great in the playoffs he seems to have a great game then a not-so-great game and then rinse and repeat.

However, if I had to take only one at this stage of their respective careers it would probably be Edler. He can still improve whereas I think with Bieksa what you see is what you're gonna get. That's not a bad thing by the way. He's my favourite Canuck for many reasons - particularly milk hot dogs.
