Especially in front of Gerber or Emery.
I think you're underrating these guys. Since 2007-08 mean performance breaks down something like:

Ehrhoff = 23 m/g number 1/2
Meszaros = 21 m/g number 3/4
Volechenkov = 19m/g number 4/5
Phillips = 21 m/g number 3/4
Corvo = 22 m/g number 3/4

Ehrhoff - Phillips
Meszaros - Volchenkov
Corvo -

That would be perfectly adequate. Certainly not bottom 3rd. Phillips, Corvo, and Volchenkov were all really good players, and the other two still are.
