I compared the number of penalties they've taken to Smithson's .. not contribution. Your complaint appeared to be the amount of times Smithson has put the team a man down ... he's tied with Weber for 2nd on the team in minor penalties behind Tootoo, one more than Suter ... meanwhile, Klein has two (2) minor penalties for the season.

If by definition defenseman are supposed to take more penalties than forwards, most of them appear to suck. Ten players in the league have 26 or more minor penalties .... seven are forwards.

Using your they play more minutes logic ... Smithson "technically" hits twice as much as Weber .... what a beast (109 hits vs 91 hits total ... with Weber playing 2.3x more minutes).
