He's good when he's healthy, which accounts for about 10% of the year.

Let Cleary and White walk and sign Edler for 6.5. Of course Jimmy and Filp will also be needing raises so it would be tough. The Swede contingent in the room (Zett, Franzen, Kronwall, Sammy, Gust, Nyquist, Ericsson ... with a handful in the pipeline) also cant hurt.

Iginla isnt going anywhere. I could see Perry bolting ... anyone would be thrilled to get him obviously. Clowe would be a great addition - especially if we lose Franzen to a trade or Bertuzzi to buyout - some size will be needed.

All conjecture. If they all hit UFA status and I had to put money on who management would go after the hardest + who would be most receptive my answer would be Edler though.
Edler at $6.5 is just about impossible with the new CBA.
