Was absolutely shocked when I saw this. We obviously knew EJ was a key part to this defense, but that stat just shows how important he was to the entire team. 8 shots against more a game without out EJ and 4 less for us, that's crazy.

I was just looking at the stats from the PHX/VAN game and the PHX Defense ice time shocked me.

OEL - 30:16
Michalek - 27:14
Yandle - 24:03
Stone - 16:57
Klesla - 16:18
Rundblad - 5:37

That's what our Defense should look like. We should be relying heavily on EJ(When he's healthy again, 28 MIns a game), Barrie(24-26), and Hejda(22-24), and Wilson(22-24) the rest should be getting little ice time.

Hunwick should only play the PP and a tiny bit of 5 on 5 against oppositions weaker lines. Zanon should only play the PK and the oppositions weakest lines. And actually it should probably be Obrien over Zanon. Waive Zanon and Obyrne or trade them for Pucks. Let our 4 Top 4 guys handle the big minutes and tough competition...

Then again, here I go thinking Joe Sacco had a functioning brain, silly me.
