But no, a defense anchored by James Wisniewski and Jack Johnson (who are being paid a combined prorated $10.5 million for Christ's sake) is not better than ours...and I'm the first to admit that our defensive corps is not good. Yeah, the Jax got a hell of a lot more offensive punch from their defense, but defensively it's a mess, as they proved last night.
They also have Tyutin, Savard, and Nikitin. They may not have an Erik Johnson but they actually have alot of decent and clearly underrated defenseman.
