10-11: Once again led Kings in this category, playing weak competition again. Brutal Corsi relative rankings too.
So you are going to pull out 08 when he was 21 (a rookie) playing the 3rd most minutes on the Kings which would have included major time with a
31 year old Vishnosky (22:60 -19)
38 year old Rob Blake (22:44 -19)
21 year old Jack Johnson (21:42 -19)

10 he plays the 2nd most GPM on the Kings again.

Doughty 24:59
Jack Johnson 22:37
Rob Scuderi 19:16
Sean O'Donnell 18:44
Randy Jones 18:10
28 year old Brad Stuart (21:13 -16)

11 once again 2nd to Doughty 25:39 (who plays alot with willie Mitchell)

Jack Johnson 23:12

I'm not going to argue that he is the best defensive dman in the world but he is hardly as you would say

I'm sorry but the worst defensive player in hockey does not get the MPG that Jack Johnson gets.

He does not get invited to play for the US at the WC 5 times in the last 7 years or the Olympics either.

As Mark Twain has said and you so well have supported this, there are lies damn lies and statistics.

But then again maybe you and 3 select years of stats over the last 7 years know much more about his defensive play than any of his NHL coaches of those of US Hockey right?
