Hod Stuart 20+3+3 = 26
Ted Green 18+0+4 = 22
Pat Egan 18+4+0 = 22
Ken Randall 8+0+3 = 11
Hy Buller 8+0+0 = 8

(As of right now, the last 3 minutes go to Jack Marshall on the PP)
I understand, that your 3rd pairing isn't the best, but still they together get only 1/6 of possible D TOI, are they THAT bad? i mean, Buller doesn't play on any special teams, and gets only 8 minutes. I'm not sure why did pick him if you don't trust him at all.

Looks like I'm higher on Green and Egan than a lot of people. I'll have to get selling them.

Just curious, what don't you like about Egan? He's an explosive scorer and big time physical presence.
i don't have a problem with Egan per se, not a fan of his skillset, reminds me of Phaneuf, but that are my preferences, they are not objective. Still i won't question that he is a fine 4th D with a right partner, my problem is, that him and Green, who while may get less TOI than Stuart still going to play against opponents' top lines, are asked to do more than they may be capable of, look at your chart - they both are getting 2 minutes less ES TOI than Bourque, basically 2 shifts less.
