I wasn't going to get petty like that, but we can waste posts on this if you want.
stralman is not a top 4 defenseman. he is a 3rd pair guy who played over his head abit and was exposed at times. i love how mdz gets killed for his gaffs in the nj series, but stralman gets a pass. some guys just cannot win with this fanbase.
and yes i will argue semantics bc youre not going to pay 4 defenseman "top 4 d money" when only 3 of those 4 will be playing in your top 2 pairings. to do so is a poor use of cap space. top 4 d men are a chief concern bc in crunch time they are the guys you rely on. im not paying a guy top 4 money who wont be playing in top 4 minutes
