Myers and Ehrhoff are asked to jump into the play while Sekera did it far less. Of course their d stats are going to suffer. If Sekera were to play a similar role his stats wouldn't be as good.
It absolutely is taken into account
it's fun to watch you attempt to make the "offensive" role into the more difficult role to play... that's pretty funny stuff
Going into this season, Ruff talked a lot about needing a shut down pair. Many assumed that meant they needed to find someone to pair with Myers... so along came Regehr. They tried them together early and for whatever reason, they broke it up. Soon they put Regehr and Sekera together, and that was the Shut down pairing.
there is not a more difficult role in all of hockey, then the one Sekera played this past year
