What's the deal?
Their defense is mediocre. Not sure where the notion that it comes close to ours comes from.
Letang is great. Orpik is very good, but he's clearly lost a step. Martin is a disappointment. They traded Michalek, who was probably their 2nd best d-man, to Phoenix. Niskanen is a pretty good middle pairing guy who can move the puck. Engelland is a good enough bottom pair whose tough as nails. Despres is a rookie.
