McBain's not a top 4 defenseman at the present time and I'm not sure if he ever will be.

The only NHL defenseman worse along the boards is Tomas Kaberle. McBain gets absolutely manhandled.

He can make a good outlet pass if he has the time and space, but he's a turnover machine in the defensive zone with any sort of pressure.

He *is* an excellent player in the offensive zone , but with the huge, glaring flaws in his defensive game it's difficult to call him a Top 4 defenseman. And that's probably why he doesn't play in the Top 4 for one of the worst defensive teams in the league.
