The only downside is his motivation, and weight issues. So far its not stopping him to produce.

Byfuglien produces more than Edler.

While byfuglien is not a defensive wiz, what makes edler a good defensive dman?

Edler gets sheltered minutes, 60 percent offensive zone starts, and somehow he is only EVEN in +/- on a top team in the regular season. Yet byfuglien is a pylon for being - 8 on a much inferior team?
Edler is inconsistent as hell on defense.

And not to mention byfuglien offers an intriguing option to use as a forward and be use as a massing net screen and power forward.
Byfuglien was paired with Enstrom. Edler was paired with a revolving door of injured defensemen. Edler is better defensively than Byfuglien, although Byfuglien certainly has more dynamic offensive abilities.
