He's not a top 3-5 dman. Off the top of my head Weber, Suter, Karlsson, Pieterangelo, Doughty, Letang, Chara, Campbell are all way better. His contemporaries are guys like M.Staal, Timmonen, Girardi, Seabrook, Boyle, Visnovsky (assuming a return to form). If we are being generous we could call him equal, although i think a step below, guys like Kronwall, Keith, Edler, Green, Burns. Guys he may be slightly better than are Myers, Subban, Smid (don't flame me i know how HF feels but they are wrong). He had one outstanding year, he isn't bound for the Hall nor is he elite. He's just very very good.
