I agree to an extent that points are not as indicative for dmen although they do tend to segregate puckmovers from non-puckmovers. I am a proponent of a team aiming to get 6 puckmovers if possible, filling the defensive dman roles with guys like Z. Michalek, Seidenberg, Hamhuis, etc. Not guys like Phillips, Regehr, et al.
Well, if TM is smart and will keep benching White/Vandy (we know he won't), we basically have only one pylon. And if Murray is replaced with Stuart next season... he's not necessarily as mobile but definitely an upgrade. It'll be one hell of a D.
