I feel that Garrison, Bieksa and Edler can hold their own (Garry more, Edler less) but can't help their partner much - due to a combo of lack of footspeed, mobility and anticipation). You can even see this in the way they defend.

Whereas Hamhuis and Tanev can do more than hold their own. So pairing them together is not optimal unless the opponent has only 1 scoring line because it weakens the 2nd pairing. It has also turned an offensive dman who can rush, pass and shoot into one afraid to make mistakes defensively (of course, being yelled at by the coach doesn't help).

Edler - Tanev
Hamhuis - Bieksa
Stanton - Garrison

should be more functional - more offense, better 2nd pairing defence.

Percentage of total points from PP

13-14: 61%
12-13: 34%
11-12: 36%
10-11: 48%

I would have to respectfully disagree with those fans, those are Ehrhoff/Good Edler type numbers, and I would certainly classify those players as PP specialists.
