Proof is that stricly defensive defensemen will almost never make over 4 millions/year. And when they do get high salaries, they are quickly branded as overpaid (Komisarek, Hannan). I love Tinordi, but he is just out of my own top 5.

1- Galchenyuk
2- Beaulieu
3- Leblanc
4- Collberg
5- Gallagher
6- Tinordi
7- Bournival
8- Thrower
9- Kristo
10- Ellis
11- Bozon
I think we all see the impact Chara has on games. Tinordi wont have the offensive impact Chara does, but I do see him as a better skater for his size. You are right, defensive defenseman arent the hottest commodity, but Tinordi has the size and reach most defensive D dont have.
