I think that further illustrates Shadow's point. Streit is seen as a top end offensive defenseman on these forums, while Liles continually gets pissed on for God knows why. This season Liles scored more goals than Pronger, Phaneuf, Rafalski, Seabrook, and Campbell, while potting the same number as Zidlicky and Markov. Liles is a 40 point defender who could easily push 50 on a good year, and only one time in his career has he scored less than 10 goals in a season. None of us are trying to say he's Bobby Orr, but he's been in very good company stats wise since he broke into the league. $4M for his role isn't bad considering what the market has been giving similar guys.
