he might be more balanced, but not better. Edler doesn't have the dynamic offensive and physical presence that Byfuglien has.

And Edler's defensive game is shaky. I never understand where fellow canucks fan get the impression edler is good defensively.

Edler is better defensively than Byfuglien but the gap is not that big.
