That's exactly the point! There are some good off-ice comparables for Malakhov (Krupp, Kasparaitis, Odelein, Manson, Leetch), and in his sheltered minutes he tended to outperform their goal differential (I realize this is nothing to be proud of, it just means he performed well
on a second pairing)
Berard has very poor off-ice comparables. I've already listed some of them. I can't say for sure
sheltered him, but Berard's reputation was that he needed to be kept away from tough defensive situations so I believe it was some of the guys getting more ES minutes than him who took them. Despite the poor players playing ahead of him, he could not outperform their goal differential from the 2nd pairing.
