Housley keeps very good company. Is he really the one exception? because the others are certainly defensively skilled. Housley is underrated around here.
You use them because it's good for you, but you can explain concisely why defensive point shares are a good measure for defensive ability?

I'm pretty certain that Housley ranks dead last in PK time among post-expansion defensemen who played over the threshold of games.
New hockeyreference.com thing to try to measure defensive and offensive ability. It uses a bunch of things that may not be really good to use, including a lot of team stats, +/-, and games played. It doesn't seem particularly good to me, but maybe someone can translate it into english. Seems to also rather favour defenseman over forwards (perhaps it should).
