Take guys like Regehr or Phillips. They both have maintained their "shutdown" ability, regardless of who the coach has been, and regardless of whether the team played defensively or a more wide-open offensive system.

I just think Komisarek is a flawed player when he's not paired with someone who can cover for his mistakes. He needed Markov in Montreal to make him look good. What other shutdown defenseman needs to be paired with an all-star caliber defenseman just to look competent?
But...but... the Leafs have Kaberle! He's a top-5 defenseman in the league!
