So Hamhuis struggled on the 2nd pair because he didn't have a reliable defensive partner?

Let me try to remember who his defensive parter was... oh yeah, KLEIN!

Not all 2nd pair defensemen are created equal. Klein is on the low end due to his way too frequent gaffes. If we didn't have Rinne, he's mistakes would be even more amplified.
