Edler was incredible. I haven't seen a defenseman at his age be so sound positionally and so poised as well. Even Erik and Jack Johnson were prone to terrible positioning, but so far Edler has been pretty much mistake-free.
Edler has been his usual fantastic self, my wife calls him "Mini Salo". What I get from him every time I see him play, particularly in the offensive zone is how calm and patient he is even when surrounded by opposing players and the puck pinballing around, he seems to always take that extra beat before he does something (usually smart) with it. The Sedins have that quality as well, no matter how hemmed in they are they seem to keep their heads instead of just dumping it to relieve pressure, course they do it a little faster so you don't see that pause as easily.
