If our forwards don't slow the opposing winger down coming into the d zone, Volchenkov is in trouble nearly every time. He just cant handle speed coming down the wing at all. He is the weakest link in the group on top of that his "toughness" is vastly overrated. Who cares if you can hit hard if you're to slow and not agile enough to line anyone up?

Volchenkov plays well from the net to the corner, basically below the redline. That is a pretty limited skill set to be the highest paid defenseman on a team.
