I disagree. I say you put the 6 best d-men out there who give you the best chance to win. If Drewiske is determined by TM to be better than Teubert, Muzzin, and Campbell and gives the Kings a better chance to win because of match-ups, puck movement, skating ability, or whatever, then he deserves to be in the lineup.
(I'm not saying I endorse Drewiske, I'm just saying there is no right answer between having 3 PMD/ 3 shut down D vs 4 PMD / 2 shut down D vs 5 PMD / 1 shut down D or whatever combination you think of - TM will ice the team with the best chance of winning.)
