Why I Avoid Hockey Boards and Puck-Rakers

…Klesla’s a better choice on the blue line than Backman.

Christian Backman is the favorite whipping boy of a lot of posters and commentors.  But before these people write in, they ought to check his stats.  Yesterday, he was even (as was Kris Russell), while other defensemen on the team were as bad as minus 3.  One of the reasons I always link to the scoresheets is so that people can read the facts if they care to do so.
