goals > shots. directing shots at the other team is great, but you win games by out-SCORING the opposition, not out-SHOOTING them. lidstrom didn't win all those norris trophies by hitting goalies with a million shots, he won them because he average 60+ pts a season. since 2009/2010 edler have outscored bieksa 124 to 88. you can argue their roles all you want, but if bieksa is the better offensive player, he would've got the better offensive minutes/situations.
edler earned the #1 PP time on merit, he wasn't spoonfed.
