I sure have. Never seen a defenseman so good at giving the other team uncontested breakaways. Never seen a supposed number one so obviously braindead when it comes to positioning and reading plays. Never seen a captain spend so much time coasting several steps behind the play. Never seen a supposed elite offensive defenseman with so little ability to carry the puck.

If he goes on the market, the results will speak for themselves. Every GM in the league knows that the potential he showed at one time is never going to be reached.
Never seen a 1D-man so overworked with no support from teammates. You are right though, his true value will show when he reaches UFA.
