With the exception of what is being done on the offensive end, this is how I've usually been able to judge how our defensemen are doing. I'll be at a game (or maybe watching on TV) and half way through it I'll stop and think "is _______ playing? I don't think I've noticed him today..." But that's usually because they're so consistent on the defensive end, I'm not noticing them and any potential bad plays. That's part of what I enjoy about Fayne. I don't notice him too much aside from any involvement in the offensive end because he's consistent enough. That's not to say I don't notice great defensive plays or anything. But if you are doing your job back there, you don't necessarily need to make some great notable play on a given shift.

I think if he's on the right line, he can definitely maintain his effectiveness. I don't know so much about the offense his line generated in the playoffs. I wouldn't "assume" our 4th line would put up points like that necessarily. But I think with the right guys he can be part of a solid energy/grinding line like they were in the playoffs. Carter/Bernier definitely make good linemates for him. I assume they could keep that chemistry going. But even in a different scenario I can see it still working if its with the right pairing. As long as they don't put him on a line he doesn't belong on (say, a scoring line), he should be fine. Not great, but effective/useful enough to warrant a lineup spot.

This is so true. At least now that I've seen this post, I won't think anything else from now on.
