Adam McQuaid 7 0 0 0 2
Aaron Johnson 4 0 0 0 -2

Four of our top six defenseman have a combined point total of 3
Yes they need an upgrade on the backend.
Time for Ference to go. Carlson would be a good upgrade.

Chris Bourque 8 1 0 1 -3
Rich Peverley 9 1 2 3 -4

Bourque is not cutting it. That is simple to see.
Peverely may need to go. Too expensive for limited point production.
We have also played the least amount of games. If we are looking at stats and especially just basing it on defensemen Pts over a 4 to 9 game sample, then all we are doing is playing fantasy hockey (and probably doing poorly). The last 1, 2, 3, plus years carry just a bit more weight than a small sample this year.

If we are going by points this year then we should be able to get Weber+ for Boychuk.

I know rash judgements over a few games will never stop but come on, Peverley is too expensive and may need to go? Get a grip. Yes there are players we can improve upon but it isn't based on a 9 game sample.
