I think advanced stats can be really twisted around to suit your argument. That being said, I think the defense has been atrocious across the board with maybe the exception of Ballard and Tanev.
The stats are ES only. Bieksa doesn't play top lines going by ice-time of who he has faced this season. Edler and Hamhuis have been the top shutdown pairing this season. Prior to that it was Edler and Garrison being the shutdown pairing.
