If Leddy would go down or Oduya, I agree with giving Clenndening the look. Right now, we just need the most reliable D DMan out there
not arguing that Stanton is better on defense...but is he better overall? Clendening has played a few less games than Stanton, has more points and is even...hardly a liability away from the puck, but yes Stanton is better away from the puck....and though stats do get misleading at times, I have watched a ton of Rockford games, Clendening has improved a bunch since I saw him with the USNDP away from the puck. still needs work, but isnt going to kill you out there.

I just think you can never have enough solid offensive skilled dmen on a team...as long as they arent pylons on the ice which Clendening isnt, you can really create a nightmare for opposing teams as all 3 pairs would have a dman capable of skating or passing the puck out of our zone and towards the attack...
