What the stats don't tell is that he and Hamhuis were on the ice for both PK goals against.

I'm not sure why Trotz reunited that pairing. It was brutal in the early season, and it's looked bad lately, and Klein\Bouillon and Hamhuis\Franson(or in this case Sulzer) looked a good deal better.

The problem seems to be that both of these guys are passive d-zone players. They've both got a terrible habit of playing the puck over the body(Hamhuis's hipchecks off the rush not withstanding), and it gets them burned a little too often.
