Either you can't see the "impact" that a shutdown pair has or you're putting a lot of stock in PPP's. Either way, you missed the boat.
Bieksa was the one making "impact" plays during our run to the finals.
Is there any evidence that suggests that Bieksa/Hamhuis was one of the best defensive pairings in the league other than the fact that we used them against the opposition's top line?
