in fairness, Hannan was slow, but because his greatest skill was forcing players to a low-percentage angle he didn't need to be fast. Hejda plays a similar style, but is less adept at it; Hannan could cover impact forwards while Hejda seems to have a fifty-fifty chance each game of totally blowing his cover. ROB is slightly better, mostly because he has better reach, and together they constitute a shutdown unit that is ok but nowhere near optimal. If Colorado continues to rely on Hejda and ROB to take the toughest minutes, they'll again have to look for superb goaltending in order to have a shot at the playoffs.
