I'm excited to see what that pairing is capable of.

Have a look at that video. I realize most of those are PP goals, but even on his ES goals he was on the right side for all of them except 1 by my count. Are you sure he didn't play the right at even strength? It's been a while now, but I remember many Florida fans telling me when he was first acquired that he could play either side fine, but was a bit better on the left.

Edler has not been very good at all on the right side in his stints there, although I wouldn't be opposed to trying it again now that he has a solid defensive partner.
