The following are all 30 teams points by defense.

#1-Vancouver-33 pts.
2-Colorado-26 pts.
T3-Dallas-25 pts.
T3-Nashville-25 pts.
T3-Detroit-25 pts.
T3-LA-25 pts.
7-Edmonton-23 pts.
8-Minnesota-22 pts.
T9-NYI-21 pts.
T9-Toronto-21 pts.
11-New Jersey-20 pts.
T12-Pheonix-18 pts.
T12-San Jose-18 pts.
T12-Atlanta-18 pts.
T15-Montreal-17 pts.
T15-Philidelphia-17 pts.
T17-Florida-16 pts.
T17-Tampa Bay-16 pts.
T17-Columbus-16 pts.
T20-Ottawa-14 pts.
T20-St.Louis-14 pts.
22-NYR-13 pts.
T23-Anaheim-12 pts.
T23-Buffalo-12 pts.
T23-Carolina-12 pts.
T23-Calgary-12 pts.
T23-Washington-12 pts.
T28-Pittsburg-11 pts.
T28-Chicago-11 pts.
30-Boston-10 pts.

We are in some very good company, It amazed me to see Vancouver with so many, I thought I did my math wrong for a second.
As much as I hate The Paci****s (pacific canucks), it looks like they are the real deal.

So Although our defense has had some lapses, just remember, they are producing more offensively now than in recent history.

Looking at the last 2 positions makes me think tight fisted Wirtz in Chicago might have been smart to loosen the purse strings enough to pick up Bryan Berard.

Marek Malik leads all players in the NHL in plus/minus too boot. He's helped my +/- category in the Yahoo, head to head, fanasty pool bigtime.

The Oilers need to tighten up on D before other teams gain entry into our own end and make the simple play to get the puck out more quickly. Too much retreating into our own end causes horrible give-aways and needless turnovers. Gaining position in the neutral zone is less risky defensively.

Ya, we are getting the exact opposite of what I expected from this blueline. With guys like Ferguson, Cross, Smith, and even in a way Staios, I though we'd be WAY WAY WAY lower in scoring, but MUCH MUCH MUCH better defensively.

Thome, I'd say you're 'preaching to the choir' but I can't even sing the Copper & Blues on key.

That's weird. Point-getting defenders get fatter contracts than even very good stay-at-home defenders (reference: Poti).

What a strange coincidence that our D is scoring more than defending!
