He's a defenseman and scoring goals wasn't his forte.
He was the all-time leader in PIM, he did win a stanley cup, he was credited with volunteering to shutdown Hull and succeeding in a playoff series, he was praised by several sources for his team play, leadership and energy level.
I simply provided the quotes.
Was he one of the all-time great shutdown defensive defensemen? No one is saying that! He was described as a journeyman who played a physical brand of defense which was successful at times, a very tough and hard-working competitor with exceptional work ethic.
No one is saying he was a top-3 defenseman on any team. But he certainly brings qualities to a #6/#7 slot on an all-time ML draft squad (lower end of the top-1000 in hockey history).
Argue against the quotes if you want.
