Marincin-Plante/Henry

The AHL's top pairing is better than the NHL's version, however the 2nd and 3rd pairings are much greater at the NHL level.
But the same could be said about last year or any year. I'm not comparing our NHL roster to our AHL roster. I'm comparing our AHL defense last year to this year, and saying that noticeable difference will translate to the NHL, where (until maybe Schultz and Klefbom come in to save it) is still well below average.
