To be fair, the Sharks have only given up 3 even-strength goals, and only 2 Sharks are minuses period (Braun and Handzus, those deadbeats). Then again, they own the two best +/- marks on the team (Pickles is tied with Marleau and Thornton), and the next closest defenseman is Boyle at +2, so I suppose you have a point here.

I like Vlasic and Stuart together very much, but I think the team benefits if they get separated. I highly doubt Murray will get benched when everyone is healthy, so if you go Vlasic-Stuart you're likely stuck with Boyle-Murray, leaving Burns to play with one of Irwin, Demers, or Braun. If the goal is to pair Murray with one of the younger guys so he can shine in more limited minutes, keeping Vlasic-Stuart together nixes that idea entirely...unless you want to play Burns and Boyle together. Hmmm...
