Taking Comparing the Defensive Groupings to the Next Level

In John Fischer's Flyers recap, there was a discussion about defensemen's records when playing together, max16s queried: "I’m wondering if someone out there steeped in Devils stats or someone who writes for Inlouwetrust can do me a favor. I’d like to compare the Devils record this year when they have Gelinas plus either Larsson or Merrill in the lineup versus their record when they have both Salvador and Vochenkov in the lineup."

There were a couple comments discussing those records. I went ahead and put together a comparison of all the full groupings, I won't recreate it, it is here if you want to review it. I decided to take it a step further and put together a table that contained the records of all the Devils defensemen's with any given one of their counterparts. Not sure we can draw any conclusions from it, but perhaps some of you may be interested in the results. Records are current through the Stars vs Devils game of 1/9/14. If there's enough interest, I can revisit this page periodically and make updates. Anyway, here is the table. I wanted to color or highlight the cells based on relativity to NHL .500, but didn't see an easy way....
