Maybe so but there are only 6 to 7 regular D men that play in a game. Just saying that Thrower brings the intangibles you can't teach, skill, natural ability to skate & a willingness to play tough & back it up!!! Plus he is still growing.
What it seems he lacks in is defensive positioning, which is much easier taught then the aforementioned.
IMO, Thrower is a smaller version of Souray, but with the ability to skate, while Ellis is a larger version of Josh Gorges, maybe lacking some of JoGo's tenacity.
