Up until now we haven't actually played a 1st 2nd 3rd pairing system as far as our D is concerned. When healthy we simply rotate our players by timed shifts for the most part. PP and PK are of course different but that changes when we are without one of our key dmen.

To me A Mart will always be the more proficient dman between he and Muzzin and that is why I would keep him of the two. Both are competent at what they do and Muzzin will need the rest of this season to find his way but in time will be a very good addition to our D corps.

A Mart's ability to play a proficient style of game and still be able to chip in offencively is why I would keep him over Muzzin but as Muzzin gets more comfortable he shows that he can be a more physical player in front of his own net (though with difficulty so far but that will change in time).

They will be followed up by either KGravel or DForbort soon enough (two seasons) and hopefully AM and JM along with VV and DD will be capable established vets by then and along with Ellerby can form our future D corps.

I also feel that Roach and Deslauriers will both be high end wild cards over the next two to three years too that can easily become NHL d.
