Even when playing badly, Edler is a #2 guy at absolute worst.
Luke Schenn is a top 5-6 defensemen... That said, I do see your point that both are inconsistent. However, If Edler is a #2 they should not trade him (I know him and Tanev are not on NTC yadda yadda), if you truly value him as a #1-2 keep him....
