Bieksa isn't the first guy to struggle in his second season. Those 34 games are an outlier in his career but for some reason have defined it for Canuck fans.

Bieksa comparison aside, Edler doesn't compare well to defensemen across the league that play similar minutes. Enstrom was brought up as a comparison, his 11 corsi dwarfed Edler's career high of <7.
