Marc Staal is an elite shutdown defender. His defense is top-10, and I'd argue top-5 in the league.

Let's just put it this way. Girardi finished 6th in Norris Voting. Staal is better than Girardi.

Game over, thanks for playing.
Where did Staal finish in Norris voting?

Staal is not an elite defender no matter which way you look at it. He's good, not great. I don't even know if I'd trade Skinner straight up for Staal, I think Skinner has a lot more potential. The only reason the 'Canes would make that trade is to have this cutesy thing of Team Staal going on.
