Doug Bodger is a passable offensive bottom pairing defenseman, I also think he's more ATD-fringe (due to internet issues, papershoes was not given the best group of defensemen to choose from). Craig Ludwig was a fairly one-dimensional defensive defenseman, but he was pretty solid. Overall this is a good contrast pair, but both defensemen don't really offer each much in the category they don't specialize in.
I think Ken Morrow is a very good #5, and the best out of all four bottom-pairing defensemen, he is solid defensively and a good penalty killer. Battleship Leduc is solid defensively and able to be adequate offensively, the unit won't be overly offensive, Leduc will occasionally chip in, but they should be a very strong defensive bottom pairing.
Australia holds a slight advantage on bottom units.
Does Morrow have the edge over Ludwig? Ludwig had similar strengths, and played over twice as many NHL games.
