That could be I guess, depending how you want to look at it. I'd definitely rather start a pairing off with Lloyd Cook than Jimmy Watson. But I think Watson's game is the perfect compliment for Boucher. There are plenty of stay-at-home defensemen out there, but I think Watson has a slightly rarer skillset in that he was quite mobile on top of being able to handle the physical game, and he played a very mistake-free style. He stayed out of the box as well, which is nice.

I'm very happy with my D this time around. I think it's strong at both ends of the ice, has great depth, and really has nobody that needs to be sheltered or hidden on a regular basis.
