I mean, how many teams think, "boy if we only had Adam Foote, we'd really go far." Maybe it's because I didn't see him much in his prime, or maybe because he never played a full season (ever!)...but he seems like the kind of guy who's nice to have but not really a cornerstone player.

Now if he were a big time hitter who also had offense, like Scott Stevens, that's different. That's a guy who plays both ends of the ice. And Dumba's a lot closer to that type of player.
Some people prefer different things. For me when it comes to defensemen, its about how many minutes they can eat against top opposition. If Trouba can develop into a defenseman that regular eats top 2 minutes of EV, PK and maybe top 4 in PP, I would be VERY happy.

If he does all that, but only scores 30 pts, I would be still VERY happy.
