Mez and Kimmo had similar Goals Created and Offensive Point Shares, but Mez had a higher Defensive Point Share and higher overall Point Share. He also had a higher +/- and a lower number of total goals scored while on ice. What more do you want from a defenseman?
Do that while playing against top lines.
