If he was sooo great, why aren't 29 other teams lining up to sign him for the PP?
two words ---> defensive liability
I would agree with you if your argument was true but I think that you are exaggerating a bit. Sure MAB is absolutely awful defensively but his goals for/goals against ratio is nowhere near as bad as you are making it out.
Last year he was a -7. Which means that 7 more goals were scored against while he was on the ice at even strength. Consider the fact that he had 7 PP goals, as well as 15 PP assists. That would mean that 15 more goals were scored while he was on the ice.
