I'm surprised Salo is rated higher than Mitchell. Mitchell's seemed to me to be the key to the Canucks defense most of the season (well, aside from Luongo).

I see Kim Johnsson is rated as the second best defensive defenseman, apparently this stat doesn't take into acount the all important "propensity to run over one's own goaltender" stat.
