He does hold his own very well. I never said he didn't. I said he plays very solid defense. I also said I don't think he is a shutdown defenseman. I see him as a big minute eating guy who plays an elite two way game.
While the east as a whole may not be as good as the west, the Atlantic division is the toughest to play in in the league, especially when your on a bad team.
