I suspect that Dewsbury was more valuable offensively than defensively too, but I can't say that with much certainty. Placing 4th-5th in scoring and not getting any votes says a lot (Zidlicky, Berard). Placing 9th-10th and not getting any votes doesn't say much.

Still, getting into the ASG on merit puts him in pretty rare company for players available now.

So I can't be 100% sure about Dewsbury, but I'm definitely sure Kurvers was an offensive specialist of the highest degree. he did get some pretty good icetime for three years, but also it should be noted that it was on bad teams. He really fit in with my 1990 Leafs, the most run and gun team of the last 25 years.

With 426 PPGF and 117 PPGA, he's got a ratio few modern defensemen can match.

I know he is very good offensively though, but since my capabilities are really limited at work now, I didn't get the chance to assess where he really stands among available guys.
