Hes a good dman and most importantly hes flexible. Hes played the shut down. Hes played the offensive role. Is he the best dman? No.
But he gets ragged on way to much by some vancouver fans.
As for his toughness its true hes bit dropping his gloves regularly and hes not taking on the John Scotts of the world. But thats more a reflection of his role as an important player on the team.
Every player, no matter how good they are, will get ragged if they play for Vancouver.
Sedins get ragged. Luongo gets absolutely murdered on a consistent basis. Kesler, Edler, Bieksa all get their share of hate. Hell, even Schneider and Hamhuis get **** from time to time.
If you don't want to get ragged while playing in Vancouver, you better drop a minimum of 80 goals and 150 assists while being 6'3, 220lb beast that can beat the snot out of John Scott.
