As a bonus, imagine in the playoffs, we can put byfuglien in front of the other teams net and cause chaos.
I agree Byfuglien would be great for the playoffs and for getting under the other teams skin, which is part of the reason why I proposed the deal, but there's no question in my mind Edler is an all-round better defenseman, contracts aside.
