The difference is pretty apparent. Vandermeer isn't great defensively, but Scott is just that much worse. Vandermeer also played 62 games in the last two seasons, and would have played more if he didn't get injured. The most Scott ever played was 51. The frequent team changing isn't a good indicator of his role as a defenseman either. Ian White was on 4 teams in 2 seasons.
