That's a reasonable assumption. My guess is that they thought Huskins could be a puckmover; he isn't. They were also giving credit to Vlasic and again that isn't happening. Like I said earlier, the top teams are trying to go for all PMDs. That doesn't mean they can't be stoppers. The last two teams to win without heavy PMDs were Carolina and Anaheim. Anaheim did it with two outstanding PMDs as their top two and Beauchemin as a distant third but still a PMD. BTW, Vlasic is not a stopper by the ratings either which is also hurtful.
