Well, Team Canada had both defensemen in the Olympics this past year and we saw how that went (although Nieds didn't play, heh).

It still is going to be interesting to see what pairings the Ducks will go with and how much ice time both dmen will get. I figure they would be on different pairings during even strength situations but paired together for the powerplay. Two dmen who can log over 28+ mins of ice time is quite a luxury.
