LOL @ the Ference love.

Our best defenseman since Pronger? Do people not remember Pitkanen? Visnovsky? Hell, even Smid and Petry are better than him right now. Prime Gilbert and Grebeshkov were also a formidable duo for a season. Sheldon Souray in his one All-Star year for us as well.

#2/3 Dman for Boston? Try #4. A sheltered #4.

Chara-Seidenberg-Boychuk were the de-facto 1-2-3 on that team. Ference occupied the middle-ground between them and McQuaid/Redden. In fact when Hamilton was in the lineup it was Ference getting bottom-pairing minutes.

I compare him to a prime Steve Staios. By no means the best player on any top-4 pairing, but someone who is steady and dependable in a 4/5 role.
