Yup. Visnovsky has been outstanding this season no matter who has played with. Souray looked so much better when he played with Visnovsky. He looks average without him although he is playing with Gilbert who sucks.

Grebeshkov's game has elevated a lot since being paired with Visnovksy as well although his defense partner at the start of the year was Gilbert who sucks.

Visnovsky's greatest strength is his ability to jump in and break up passes in the neutral zone. I have never seen an Oiler dman do it as much as he does. He is also a great puck mover.

Kaberle is the better PP quarterback from what I have seen, but I haven't watched him enough to pick up on the rest of his game.
