 Hah, no not by a longshot.....Yet. He's got a ton of potential and is having a great year but the comparison seems to pop up now & again which is unfair to the guy. At least he has a good head on his shoulders and tries to learn from the master. From an article:

"What he's done in many ways is emulate Nick Lidstrom, his offensive game in particular. The two play the point in many of the same ways, although Edler somewhat blushes when he hears the name.

“Whenever you watch Detroit you watch the things he does and you always try to learn,” said Edler the day before he suffered back spasms against Detroit. He then laughed when it was pointed out that he has a physical element to his game that Lidstrom doesn't and fired of this retort: “Yeah, but he has a few other things … like seven Norris trophies.”

How can you not like this kid.

Wait, Edler does not equal Lidstrom.

Edler's the one actually going to the all star game.

If the 12 d men going to the all star game were actually the best 12 men in the league then goals per game would be closer to 7 or 8 a game
