Besides, on your team the troubles of getting out of the D-zone can be blamed on the forwards as much as the d-men, if not more so.
I paid attention and it's probably fair to say Token, Barry and others watched too because the 3rd pairing is one of the two big question marks on the team to start the season. They had more troubles than Franson/SOB had in most games last year and they did it in far fewer minutes. They had trouble clearing, they had trouble with positioning and they had trouble maintaining structure and supporting each other. Those things lead to scoring chances and over time scoring chances lead to goals. You may not agree but, to me, that qualifies as stink.
