Agreed, but he's also taken his usual bad penalties.

I can't disagree more. Erixon has played better than MDZ and Bickel. MDZ is still throwing the puck away on a regular basis, even when he has time to skate it up the ice. Parlett has been just as good as Bell in the offensive zone and better in his own. All you have to do is watch the Frolunda game where Parlett an Bell are the ice. Bell lets his man high get away from him while Parlett is directing traffic and staying tight to his man coming back. When it comes down to it, Parlett and Erixon can be optioned to Hartford because of their contracts and Bickel carries a smaller cap hit.

I don't know why people keep saying this. Last year he was better than 50%. By percentage, Dubinsky was #34 in the League, Richards was #48. That's not too far apart ranking league wide. 2 years ago, Richards was ranked #34 and just slightly higher of a percentage then Dubinsky though Dubinsky took too few to be considered among the league leaders according NHL.com. They were separated by .2
