Again, I didn't look at PK, but it's very rare for players to be actually solid at PK when they are weak at ES... as much as the layman's eye tells them otherwise.
That's not always true when you're talking about a dman who's biggest weakness is his skating. The PK is an entirely different game. Peckham is effective because he's as strong as a bull, and does a good job of battling in the corner, and clearing the front of the net. Peckham had a bit of an off year last year, but he's generally pretty underrated
