then why weren't other defensemen on his team in the same range?

for example, 1998. Led the Isles with 1.29 ESGA/GP. Closest was Lachance with 0.94. McCabe and Jonsson got all the ES minutes and they were 0.94 and 0.83, respectively.

2004. Quint was well-known to be abysmal defensively. He played on Chicago wth Berard and though he was 3rd-worst in the NHL, his per-game average was significantly lower.

2006. Foote was 2nd-worst with 1.06, far below Berard's 1.39. And Foote was shutdown player, trying vainly to stop the oppositon's best.
