#Habs Greg Pateryn is big, strong, rarely out of position. Good shot. Decent power, but importantly gets it through. Skating only average.

Although Lefebvre never really loads up 1 unit, usually the lesser forwards play with the better point men and visce-versa, so it's hard to tell what is their 1st unit.

You're right that Lefebvre has used his four powerplay d-men mostly interchangably (Holland, Pateryn, Beaulieu, and St. Denis), but lately Holland - Pateryn has started more powerplays than not.

Pateryn has been the team's best d-man since returning from injury. Plays 23-28 minutes a night on top pairing with Beaulieu (or with Tinordi the past two games), getting top PP and PK minutes.

Big, tough, stable/responsible blueliner with a good shot from the point (decent power, but most importantly gets it through). Not a flashy guy, but a team guy and crease-clearer.

I've been advocating Pateryn as top call-up on D for quite a while, so happy with this move and happy for Greg!
