I did not say Zidlicky was bad on defense, I didn't even say Pitkanen was better defensively. All I said was from what I have seen, Pitkanen is the better defenseman. The distance between their offensive abilities is much smaller than the distance between their defensive abilities. Pitkanen hs been stellar. I absolutely hate the Flyers, so it really pains me to say this, but Pitkanen has been the best rookie this year so far, as well as one of the best defensemen. And by the way, there is more to offense than point totals. Just his puck carrying ability is enough to make someone take notice.
