Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men
who find it easier to live in the world they've been given
than to explore the power they have to change it.
Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion.
Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare.
Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary.
Impossible is nothing.

Geez Edler is a beauty! Has the big shot, good positional D, great passer and he hits BIG!

Weaknesses?

Nothing is really a weakness, because Edler has a bit above average size and capable speed. He hits big because he makes the effort to hit (good for him!), but not because he is physically imposing. So a net summary is that he is competent in all area's and has all star skills in the items above.

Then what separates him from a Norris candidate? Edler is not an elite athlete; but rather than it be a weakness its just what separates him from that true upper echelon level. The end to end rush highlight aside, one skill that could improve is a consistent ability to rush the puck; both to break pressure or to navigate the neutral zone (instead of that god awful drop pass) and deliver us to the scoring zone on the PP. So either add explosiveness with elite training or learn how to push up the ice protecting the puck with your body ala Pronger. And last, also add that Willie Mitchell level of compete, punish forwards battling in front of the net. Punishing guys in front of the net and improving his abilty to rush the puck would make Edler a knockout Norris candidate!

Guys like Lidstrom, or the Sedin's, discovered that elite level of training that gave them a new level at about Edler's current age. Hmmmm?

With how quiet and unimposing Eddie is I often forget about his value. The guy can score and hits like a ???? tank.

I hope he can find his stride beside Garrison. The two of them have the potential to be a deadly combination of passing and shooting ability, while also being able to land hard hits, and shut down opposing teams.

Edler has been my favourite player for a while now because he's so humble, yet he brings a great package of abilities to any team. He can do almost anything you would want a defenseman to do. I love it when he flattens a guy, especially when he does it to rival teams like on Kane and Doughty.

Great!...................but let us not kid ourselves..............we know what's missing from that video. And bearing in mind he is the biggest set piece on our defensive 6, it hurts us.

That is why for the right player(s) I would be happy to part with him.

24 pts in his first full season and only 22 years old. Drafted 19th OA in 2008

My favourite Edler moment in recent times is his crushing hit on Kane in the opening minutes of Game 2 in the 2011 series. Loved seeing Kaner get steamrolled like that.

Edit: Also, great video but might I suggest you either put a song with some lyrics or maintain some of the commentary (for example the coast-to-coast goal or a big hit) so it's not boring to just listen to a soundtrack.

Great post hit the nail on the head. I've been thinking for a while if he'd up his training in the off season he could really make the jump to top 5 in the league.
