Top 6 defensemen for Edmonton versus for Columbus, games played:
Whitney (51) versus Wisniewski (48) - 3 more games
Smid (78) versus Tyutin (66) - 12 more games
Petry (73) versus Nikitin (54) - 19 more games
Potter (62) versus Martinek (7) - 55 more games
Peckham (54) versus Methot (46) - 8 more games
Gilbert (47) versus Clitsome (51) - 4 less games
Teubert (24) versus JMoore (67) - 43 less games
Sutton (52) versus AJohnson (56) - 4 less games
Barker (25) versus Lebda (30) - 5 less games
Plante (3) versus Savard (31) - 28 less games

And for the record...
Schultz (20, deadline) versus JJohnson (21, deadline) - 1 less game.


Oh, and...
Dubnyk: .914 SV%, 2.67 GAA, 47 games played in
Khabibulin: .910 SV%, 2.65 GAA, 40 games played in

versus
Mason: .894 SV%, 3.39 GAA, 46 games played in
Sanford: .911 SV%, 2.60 GAA, 36 games played in


That said, I can see why a PMD would be a greater priority. But don't pretend that Edmonton had it harder with blueline injuries or anything like that. It just ain't so.
