Hamhuis is more sound on defense, but Edler can be an offensive threat as well, he could quarterback a powerplay and he can also play the penalty kill if you need to. He just has an all around game and that's what I like about him.

Well...Harold Snepsts and Dana Murzyn could crosscheck players and fight! Lets see Edler do that!

Yeah it's too bad Bubla (and Hlinka) didn't come over sooner to North America - but alas the "political environment" was alot different back then. In Bubla's case, I think his game would've adapted well to the "North American style of hockey"; as it was, he did have a couple servicable years for the Canucks.
