I agree, completely.

I've found Sami Salo to be the Canucks' best defenseman in all six of the 'Nucks games I've watched this year. Bryan Allen has been a very close second, and Mattias Ohlund third. Salo seems to always make the right decisions with the puck, and Allen is simply downright scary physically. His skating has improved considerably over the past three years and this is the biggest reason he's been getting increased minutes.

In my opinion, all four of Ed Jovanovski, Nolan Baumgartner, Steve McCarthy and Wade Brookbank have been downright horrendous and I've enjoyed seeing them play as an Avs fan.
