Five million a year, for six years, that's a good contract for both sides.

Steal of a deal. I'd put Edler in the top 10 dmen in the league, possible baseline for Letang's next deal this summer.

Definitely not a top 10 defenseman in the NHL. He had a poor season last year. He has some upside but I can easily think of 10 defensemen I'd rather have.
