Yes, I knew he was quite strong defensively.

I've always viewed him primarily as a forward, and I'd often forget that he could drop back to defense. I was merely commenting on how I hadn't seen anyone in the ATD do it before (since I've started).

Only problem for nik is that taking away Noble likely makes Derain Hatcher is #1 defenseman, which is not god enough, IMO. Ron Stackhouse is good enough to be a starting defenseman in a 40 team draft, though, so he won't have any trouble with depth.
