Once Chara had developed into the elite defenseman he is today, that would be true. Chara only really started to come into his own in 2004. That's only 1.5-2 seasons playing behind Chara.
Before Chara, Redden was their #1 match-up defenseman. I don't think he was used that way after the lock-out though.
Looking through Jovo's teammates in Vancouver, Jovo to me looks like he would have had the toughest assignments.
Mattias Ohlund was Vancouver's #1 match-up defeneman for Jovanovski's entire time there.
