Anyone even suggesting Kris Russell is even close to overused this year (the guy above me) has allowed a dogmatic reliance on advanced metrics to completely poison their view of the player. He's been an solid #4 Dman and has been utilized as exactly that.

you need to add 5 points to each statistics for the Hamonic knock out:

And 5 points each for the uppercut he served Martel for that blind side to Stecher:

He isn't that bad and many in Vancouver have levelled off their expectations. Your stats blind you but we all know that. Now if you suggested Pouliot then you would have gained some credibility.
