To say he was the #1 D that year is really a stretch if you ask me.

Edit: just realized you meant for the second half. Don't remember enough specifically about the second half to comment.
Yeah, the second half. After Gorges was done for the season and they had to change everything with the D.

Gill - Subban played the tough minutes against the other team's top lines. The 2nd pair was Hamrlik - Wiz and then we had a number of guys rotating on the bottom pair. Spacek was out from February 12th to April 7th that season.
