If we're strictly talking Dmen, I'd probably slightly prefer Janik. His game is very different than Meech's, and I think for a bottom pairing his style of play is a little more useful than what Meech brings. What makes your question blurry is that its not just Meech vs. Janik for the 7th Dman, rather its Janik vs. Meech for the 7th Dman + Meech, the capable plug up front.

Good question.....tough to answer.

In the games that I saw (and personally at the Joe, like 12/31 against COL), Janik looked better defensively and more responsible on both ends of the ice. Not saying that Meech isn't, but that Janik is slightly ahead of him.

I am glad I looked at that date on this topic... that was funny though...made me laugh for a moment, until I realized that if you just replace the name in the title with Quincey and it was just about as useless as a signing this would have been, then I curse Holland again...

Not funny.

From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke

The sad part is this is totally something Holland would do.
