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.
not sure I completely agree...
Plante was an AHL allstar and Teubert was one of the better Dmen in AHL last year.
AHL pairing of Teubert-Plante was as good as any in AHL last year.
Fedun at AHL level is comparable to Petry at NHL level
Marincin is comparable if not better than a Whitney with a bad foot.
Fillers like Deck,Henry etc have been better than what we got from Sutton\Peckham and Barker..

I dont expect our NHL D to be any better than what we are seeing at AHL level.
