Jovo could do this, and did do this on a consistent basis over his career with the Canucks. That is why I rank Jovo higher, but just slightly.
Remember the last year Jovo was on the team - who was in the penalty box when Calgary scored that OT series winning goal (worse, it was a needless penalty).
Bieksa has done more to help the Canucks advance in the post-season.
