Dallas Stars 2011-12 Season Grades: Adam Pardy

Once again it's that time of year here on Defending Big D where we take a look at each player that suited up for 20 or more games this season (and are still with the team) - and take a look back at their season. What was good about it, what wasn't so good, and the lasting impression they left us as we go into summer.

Key Stat: 11.1 - When Adam Pardy was on the ice the Stars as a group missed the net on 11.1 shots per 60 minutes which is the lowest total among Stars defensemen (for what that's worth).

The Good: Pardy only got into 30 games. I say that somewhat tongue in cheek, but he was pretty bad early in the year. He still had mental gaffes later in the year, but he was a much steadier influence after he settled down.

The Bad: For the better part of his tenure as a Star (to this point) the puck has been kryptonite to Pardy. He had the second worst Corsi rating among Stars defensemen. When he had the puck a mental error was always seemingly around the corner. His early play did so much to damage his marginal reputation in Dallas that when he finally settled down most of the fanbase was done with him.

The Bottom Line: Pardy was signed to be a depth defenseman. He's making a below league average salary on a team 20 million dollars (give or take) under the salary cap. All in all he did what the Stars should have expected him to do. He played bottom line minutes, was up and down, and did little of note on 85% of his shifts.

The Vote: Rate Pardy on a scale of A to F (A being the best of course) based on his performance relative to his potential and your expectations for the season.
