You can watch Edler all you want but you're not considering that he plays against weaker competition, while being sheltered by being given prime O-zone starts with better forwards. Yet despite all that his relative Corsi is worse than Bieksa. No matter what you say about their defensive play, it's wrong. Bieksa is the better defenseman based on this criteria. If you wanted just a smooth skating defenseman with a good shot and nothing else matters then you'll love MA Bergeron. Let's give him $6M too shall we?
Corsi/relative Corsi is not the be-all-end-all determiner of which player is better.

Go look at a list of Corsi rankings and tell me if they correlate exactly to which player is better. They don't. They may in some instances, but they are not a definitive stat that can tell which player is better than another.

Hell, Justin Williams has a higher Corsi than Malkin, Thornton, Perry, Getzlaf—who would you rather have?
