At least Bouwmeester is playing right now, that's not the case with Rozsival and Markov!

It looks like they're only spending 500K less than the Caps and Sharks. They're probably 12th...

Rozsival's cap hit is 5 mil, but he's actually making 3 mil this year. Yandle is making 500k less than his cap hit and Aucoin is making 200k more than his cap hit. OEL has 850k in performance bonuses he may not earn. So phoenix's actual salary for the defense is between 2.3 mil and 3.15 mil less than the total cap hit.

Rozival and Bouwmeester, oh god.
Is it just me or is every Finnish person either a Ducks, Habs or Wild fan.

Probably due to the influence of Selanne, Koivu and Koivu respectively.

Preds can re-sign Suter and Weber for 7.5 mil each and still not crack the top 10...

No.
But many are.

Avs have a $14.050.000 7-men defense if anyone's interested ($14.700.000 if you swap Elliott with Hunwick)

Letang, Engelland, and Orpik for $7.75 million for many more years yet to come qualifies.

6 of those teams.

Detroit has the highest scoring defense, second lowest shots against per game and is 6th in GA/G all while having the regning Norris trophy champion on the team
