Second pairing D-Man? Third pairing I agree with, but I don't see him as a second pairing D-Man. And a lot of people in this thread are mentioning how his fight totals have declined...I remember reading an article about him awhile back, when he was in the doghouse in Vancouver, and him saying he was tired of just being asked to go out and fight instead of actually playing hockey. He said he was worth more than being just a fighter, which is why his fight totals dropped significantly.
