I think the guy above you put it quite well:

When I said that Kalteva was nothing special I didn't exactly mean that he sucked everyone's balls. What I meant was that he was pretty much completely average over here. Reliable, yes, but still mediocre. Nothing to write home about. And so forth.

Now he's making a claim that can be universally disputed. If it wasn't, we wouldn't have this thread to begin with.

There are around a hundred d-men currently who are reliable and solid enough to play in SM-liiga - guys like Kalteva. And then there are hundred more who are clearly better than him. Now, it doesn't really matter whether the claim is true or not. What matters is that you should have been in that upper half in the "worse" league if anyone is to believe you're "moving up" in the world.
