Advanced statties will no doubt strike me down, but he seems like he's played OK recently.  Within his limitations, of course. 

Sure will: 39.7% CF and 33.3% GF in his past 8 games.

edit: And his partner in all those games, Borgman, managed a still-not-great-but-better 44% CF and a 53.8% GF.

Advanced stats are Fake News.

The main point here is that our defense is only skin deep. So it's time to call in a dermottologist.

The main point is that Lou and Shanahan and Babcock talk about earning your minutes and not looking at cap numbers or past experience to dictate the lineup and that has fairly consistently been shown to be a load of bull dung.

I wonder if Dermott can earn himself a full-time role with the team this season even after Zaitsev returns. The Marlies have one of the best PK's in the AHL and Dermott's played a huge role in that. Babcock can still use another penalty killer and Borgman isn't an option.

Dermott getting right into the lineup is interesting. I guess if you're going to drop him in, the Canucks are a good team to do it against.

I have to say that while Borgmann does occasionally make some questionable decisions with the puck in his own end, overall I like what I see from him more than Carrick or the recently departed (let's shoot the puck right at the referee) Marincin. Maybe he just needs to sit and watch for a game or two. Or maybe Dermott will turn out to be better, though that seems unlikely based on everything I've read about him.

They seem to be taking a look at some guys, probably preparing for trade deadline decisions.

Sure, but, even with that, he's the 7th best healthy defenceman on the roster.
