He's no longer consistently the absolute worst player on the ice every game.
Step in the right direction.

Why are you guys so hard on him? After all, he is the one thats going to win us the cup, from the defensive side.

Because he really didn't have a good game today and he's been bad all season.

Far from our #1 D tonight, but wasn't #6. He still had a few bad giveaways and didn't do much offensively. Good start though

That same play where Columbus scored on us in OT, seems to happen every damn game now. He doesn't hit em, he doesn't skate with em, he just goes turnstile mode. Looks like an old lady skating, back must be hurting. Just isn't fast enough to bail himself out.

Edler can be a number one d-man, but he hasn't played like one lately.

I remember when he first broke into the NHL. All the same praises we're giving to Tanev, it used to be for Edler.
"Wow, he's so cool under pressure! Cold as a cucumber!"
"Makes the simple plays, no mistakes"

Now he's handling the puck as if it's a grenade waiting to go off.

What gets boring and predictable is Edler skating up ice... (Wait for it) and boom, a drop pass. Opposing teams have no worry of him carrying the puck into the zone cause 9 out of 10 times will drop pass the puck.

He needs to play his size and skill.

Edler needs a stable partner. He was fine either playing with Ehrhoff or Salo. Both gone, and it looks like he hasn't elevated his game yet. He is still very young, reminds me of Bieska 3 years ago. 3 years ago Kevin Bieksa was a !@#$% in mother @@#$% in liablity to the team. It came to a point were he only played 16 minutes of ice time. When we traded for Ballard I thought oh yay, we are finally going to trade away Bieksa. But guess what, he improved and got better. Edler is on the same course. He will get better and improve.

Edler had a solid game. Broke up some potentially very dangerous chances. CDC is just too busy with "OMGZ he drop passed again!!!1!1!!!1" Yeah, the drop pass that always backs up the defense, stop doing that. :rolleyes:

Clearly he has been told he needs to tighten his defensive game up before he deals with offense so he's not getting PP time, thus not much offense tonight but whatever, it'll come if he keeps playing like this. Not every offensive d man is Weber...or Garrison :bigblush:

The whole season, our best defenceman have been Hamhuis and Tanev. Garrison/Bieksa not far behind. Edler was alright in the first couple games, then started playing decent. He was great with Ehrhoff and Salo.
