Move Stuart to the left and he tops the left side in puck skills although Irwin has been a nice surprise.

A note on Braun, his puck skills seem to have fallen off as well. Take note of the shot clock on the game when Boyle was sick; puck skills count.

Here is the depth I see with a healthy team.

Right side:
Boyle
Burns
Demers/Braun

Left side:
Pickles
Stuart
Irwin/Murray
Stuart has definitely been the better of he and Vlasic, but Vlasic is the better player. I was just responding to the claim that Stuey's the best stay-at-home defenseman we've had since Hannan, when Vlasic should have that title.
