This year, yes. Edler has struggled notably. That being said both Phaneuf and Edler's careers have been mired by repeated and arguably long bouts of inconsistency. My point of contention was not who's better - I gave Phaneuf the edge right now because he is playing better. But that you cited Edler as an overrated #3. That's more Luke Schenn or Josh Gorges level.

Even when playing badly, Edler is a #2 guy at absolute worst.
