Basically, what I'm seeing is when the blue line is healthy, Huskins is still with Demers on the 3rd pairing...which is always protected in terms of matchups. Then Wallin is on the 2nd pairing with Vlasic and the pairing is just awful.
The root behind them seeing less time in those situations is their God awful puck movement. While Huskins has been better positionally than Wallin, they're equally as crappy at moving the puck and routinely give the puck away in the most ridiculous ways possible. I would gladly sit both of them for Joslin and Braun but that's just not going to happen. lol
