With the way the rest of the defense corps for the Sabres has played this year not I'm stunned that Ruff has entrusted Fitzpatrick with as much ice time and responsibility as he's had.

And Fitzpatrick's ice time last night was largely due to his being paired with Zhitnik to allow Z to play the left side.

Heading into the season Fitzpatrick was the Sabres best all around RH defenseman. So putting him with Zhitnik isn't that big of a leap. Especially given the fact that Zhitnik is the only other Sabres defenseman that has been solid on more nights than not.

I'm more shocked with how poorly guys like Kalinin, Tallinder, and Delmore have played.
