Glad SKost is back as well, I liked that third line.
Me too.....(SK)
MAB provides a D that can run and gun as well as provide quick breakout. He is excellent in reading the play offensively and provide quick turn around in the play.

He has done very well on D as an Edmonton Oilers in the past palyoffs as wel.
We all know his drawback.

Martin is obviously capitalising on the goods that MAB brings....
Obyrne would be an excellent fit against a physical team but definitely a minus (worse than MAB) against a team like Washington in my opinion.
