Hi, I come from the south side of the country and hockey never was a sport I followed, but a couple of friends have told me there's a rule on the game that prohibit the referee to stop a fight once it started, is that true?

Hey thanks Matt. The lack of conclusion felt like a cop out at the end, I went through all the numbers and in the end just threw my hands in the air in confusion.

great post. i like how you weren't suckered into coming to a conclusion when looking at a defenseman who plays the toughest competition in the worst defensive division in hockey and a defenseman who plays second pairing minutes and puts up big numbers. They seem to be very different players.

To be fair, his division did produce 2 Stanley Cup champions in a row, and I really think the last couple years the NW division has gotten worse not better.

I personally feel that Bouwmeester is already in the top group defensively but Dion is not, while Dion is the opposite.

We will probably be able to make a better comp when Bouwmeester is signed by a WC team next year ;)

It's a tough comp isn't it?

Bouwmeester is a bit older, has played on a worse team, but has also played in a much shittier division. Last season, he played in front of decidedly superior goaltending than Phaneuf, but, again, with crappier people surrounding him.

Im a big Bouwmeester fan too. I think he could well develop into one of those elite guys that does what Regehr does for us currently...but also chips in 40 or so points every season. He's just about there now.

Dion...well, he's offensively elite already. If he adds the other dimension, he's worthy of the Norris talk. If not, he might become another "Jovo" type player (sans injuries). Only time will tell which way he goes.
