Seabrook scored more points than Keith 2 times, 06-07 and last year. But I agree Seabrook isn't a pure defensive dman like Hjalmarsson has been. The point wasn't that Seabrook's offensive abilities aren't good, it was that he and hjalmarsson are both bigger, more physical players and keith and leddy are smaller less physical but quicker and shiftier players so it seems like it would make more sense to have one of each per pair. But it seems almost moot now as some have speculated that it could be because of the side that each is comfortable playing on.
