Last year Souray was out and Rivet and Quintal played all season with various injuries. Rivet's wrist was so bad at one point that season ending surgery was considered. Now that all three are back at 100%, there is very nice balance on the blueline.
Rivet and Quintal have been slagged to no end. Truth is though, that they will be relied upon to help this team into the playoffs. Of course no more needs to be said regarding Souray.
