Sens have EK, then Methot and CowEn as 2A & 2B.

McLean doesn't believe in stacking his top pairing with the best D on the team. He likes a PMD (Gonchar, Wiecioch, EK) paired with a more physical guy (Gryba, Methot, Cowen). Phillips is

All Ds have to punch in and support the offense if it's appropriate to do so.

Being a physical D doesn't mean you're not good at playing the puck.

Same as EK being so good offensively doesn't he can't play D.
