just did some more checking into Berard's defensive record:

1998: 3rd in NHL in ESGA/GP, behind Leetch and Lumme
1999: 49th, 34th among D-men
2002: 31st, 23rd among D-men
2004: 1st in the NHL with 1.53, next was Marc Savard at 1.37, then Fata at 1.27. next D-men to show up were Dan Focht & Deron Quint - 1.27 & 1.25. That's huge!
2006: 1st in the NHL with 1.39, next was Bryce Salvador at 1.28.

the seasons that I didn't mention were years where he was in the average/not significantly above average range. (97, 00, 03, 08). Also, remember that he often had pretty low ES TOI figures, so on a per-minute level he would score worse than this.

regardless, bottom-3 three times, is awful.
