We can all agree that elite EV Dmen face at least 15:00 TOI. Of that group he is one of seven 2.50GF/60 or greater; 2.00GA/60 or less in the whole league.

M SCHNEIDER D ANA 2.6 1.27 23
JOHNY ODUYA D N.J 2.67 1.39 24
PAUL MARTIN D N.J 2.54 1.5 20
MAREK MALIK D NYR 2.99 1.63 15
N LIDSTROM D DET 3.56 1.64 41
KURT SAUER D COL 2.81 1.7 15
B RAFALSKI D DET 3.02 1.71 27
JAN HEJDA D CBJ 2.5 1.82 15
DUNCAN KEITH D CHI 2.69 1.98 17

He is Top 25 in hits in the league for Dmen

23rd Jan Hejda CBJ D 81gp 148Hits 90Bks

So he is top ten in GA as a defensive defenceman with offensive transition skill and close to a 150 hit 100Bk rtss Dman.

He is a heavy lifter on the Pk greater than 3:00 TOI. He ranks in the top 20 in Goals against.

He is the only Dman in the league with all these skills. The best complete defensive package for Dmen in the laugue.

As an oilers fan I am still pissed Klowe did not sign him.

But hey in your mind he is a third pairing Dman.

What a dumb.
