Not the worst counter proposal I've heard. I'd honestly rather keep Bieksa over Edler just because of our top pairing chemistry we have with Hamhuis. Also, the assured contract status helps Bieksa's value here, not because there is any doubt that Edler will sign, but because of the uncertainty of the new CBA at this time.

I'd be interested in something along the lines of Simmonds+ for Edler, but for Bieksa, especially because of the sand paper he brings (not to say Simmonds or Edler aren't physical or anything of that sort) as well as the leadership role he has, I'd be looking for a return like Hartnell for Bieksa+.

Coburn aside, with Pronger and Mezaros out, who are the other defenders that would be filling a top four role on the Flyers? And more specifically, who would be available for an upgrade trade?
