Dion instead has to carry his pairing. Heck, even Komisarek would've been better partner for Dion against Rangers.
Gunnarsson was only -1 against Rags, and +2 against Isles; but Carlyle's love for Kostka is getting frustrating for me to endure.
And I thought Phaneuf's stronger side is right side. I could be wrong, but thats what I thought and thats why Gunnar is a far better partner for him.
Dion's stronger side is the left side......but his issues as always is the puck.....he watches it far to much while not looking around and assessing his responsibilities. Kostka is trying to do too much currently, lets see how he does after 20 games before making a real assessment.
