Tom Preissing and Marek Malik both led the league amongst defensemen on consecutive years since the lockout. Both are out of the league. League leaders among defensemen for +/- are a collection of elite defensemen, and partners who hid behind their anchor.

Holmgren paid Meszaros MORE to anchor the 3rd pairing because Carle can't do it.
