First Pairings

Denis Potvin is the best out of all four of the defensemen by a fair margin. Leetch is not a very good #1, he is good offensively and pretty good defensively, but not a good shutdown guy, compared to especially Potvin, he is underwhelming as a #1. He has a good partner in Moose Johnson, a decent #2, who is a better shutdown defenseman. They complement each other pretty nicely, but I think the Jacks' corps lacks a good top guy. Bob Baun is the worst defenseman of the four, but makes for a strong stay-at-home guy, so that when Potvin has opportunities, Baun will always be back for him.

Inglewood holds a slight advantage on the first pairing, I like Leetch, but not as a number one, still a good pairing that should not be a liability by any stretch.
