I don't like this situation one bit.
Sure MAB could get you that on the PP. He's a top level PP defenseman. Which is the only reason he's even in the NHL.

He was a clear number one on ES in both role and results and was a leader of one of the top PK in the league in addition to being pretty good on the powerplay. That's what makes him a number 1 D.

And the "only on a 15th place team argument" is a dud too. He played exactly the same role on half a 6th place team he was on the year before in the 2nd half.
