With Bieksa, Tinordi and Emelin we have 3 big d-men who won't take abuse from anyone and who will make it painful to enter our zone. We then have Markov, who is also physical, and Subban, who is not taking **** from anyone neither.

In more offensive/fast paced games, rest Tinordi or Bouillon and put Diaz in.
How is Bieksa a "great #2-3 d-man who is big"?

He is listed smaller than Gorges, a bit more physical but not as good on PK and his offensive numbers are not much better(9pts vs 12 points) but he has a bigger cap hit.

A perfect example of "the grass is always greener on the other side".
